To launch PARP (Pick a Reading Partner), Manor Oaks School students in grades K-6 participated in Adventure Bound’s Wild and Crazy Challenge on Jan. 23, sponsored by the school’s PTA.
As the school’s PARP theme this year is “Win to Read,” the PARP committee organized the game show for the students to answer trivia questions and participate in physical challenges, like building the tallest LEGO tower, stacking cups and more.
Throughout the two-week event, students will participate in multiple themed in- school events, such as Pictionary in Pajamas, Chutes and Ladders Day, Word Search Day and more. They are also able to play Moe-opoly, created by school librarian Natalie Hartmann, completing various challenges during the event.
Each student signed a contract to pledge to read together with their selected reading partner at home for 15 minutes or more, five days per week, for the duration of PARP. The PTA will be providing prizes for all students, including the prizes that will be given to students during the closing ceremonies where students will be playing Bingo.
