PARP at Belmont

Belmont held the annual two-week reading program known as PARP — Pick a Reading Partner — with a variety of activities aligned with this year’s theme, “Read Around the World!” As part of PARP, each class was asked to select a country and create a labeled flag of that country outside its classroom door. Students were then tasked with keeping a passport reading log, in which they wrote down all of the books that they read over the course of the two weeks, and passport stickers were distributed to students who read a fiction or nonfiction book that takes place in a different country. At the culminating ceremony, the top readers in each class were honored with prizes.
