Welcome to PARP!

Dear Units and Councils,

The annual Pick A Reading Partner (PARP) program is underway in schools throughout our region and state!  This PTA-sponsored program promotes the love of reading by encouraging children to read with their “partner” on a daily basis.  Each school can choose their own theme, activities, events, and prizes, and can submit their program to the NYS PTA for consideration for the state’s PARP award. 

The NYS PTA website offers all the guidelines your school needs to design and implement your own PARP program.  Visit Literacy (PARP) page to learn more and get started!  You can view winning program details as well as plenty of suggestions for themes, activities, prizes, and more.

If you have questions or would like assistance in any way, please feel free to contact  at
