Northside Elementary Turns The Page For PARP
Books were abound at Northside Elementary School in the Levittown Public School District as students went wild for the annual Pick a Reading Partner event.
Wildlife and nature were the focus of students' many literary adventures under the theme of "Wild About Reading," and several fun activities fueled students' passion for reading. On different days, students in all grades dressed as wild animals, wore pajamas, donned Northside gear and flaunted green to mimic reptiles. Students were also tasked with completing as many challenges as they could, which included reading fiction or non-fiction books about animals, listening to an audiobook, visiting the public library and much more. For each challenge completed, students were entered to win prizes.
The fun did not stop there, though. Students shopped for new stories at a book fair, and a poster contest yielded dozens of artistic works reflecting the theme of "Wild About Reading."
