PARP month begins!

Starbooks Cafe - Read a Latte

One of the most important skills our children learn is reading. Reading creates a strong, positive influence and builds a foundation for a lifetime of significant benefits. PARP (Pick A Reading Partner) is a program designed to foster a love of reading in children by asking parents, siblings and caregivers to set aside 15 minutes daily to read with their children. Spending just 15 minutes a day reading with your child helps “grow a reader” and raises the potential for academic and lifelong success.

PARP events are held at schools nationwide, and John H. West has hosted this important event for more than 12 years! For 2022, your PTA proudly invites you to join John H. West’s Starbooks Cafe - Read a Latte!
