Pick A Reading Partner - Books Are Better Than The Movie At East Lake

The Pick a Reading Partner program (PARP), encourages adults to spend time reading at least 20 per day with children.This year's PARP  theme for East Lake School is "Red Carpet Readers: The Book is Better Than the Movie" The theme is designed to help students understand how much more of the story is in the book compared to a movie. East Lake stars came out for the wonderful program. Students signed contracts to show their commitment. They received  autograph books, VIP passes and a pencil. Each student had the opportunity to visit the Book Fair to purchase new books, take selfies, dress up as their favorite book characters, as well as, participate in creating bookmarks. They truly embraced this positive program.
