The goal of the Parents As Reading Partners is to promote a love of reading between parents and children. Terryville kicked off their month of PARP with an exciting in school assembly called "Singable Stories" presented by "Beth and Scott", a sought-after musical performance duet who have won the prestigious Parent Choice Award. 

During PARP Terryville students will also participate in a book swap and enjoy a "Mystery Reader Week" with the Terryville faculty and staff. 

April Victor, principal of the elementary school, said the program went off without a hitch and helps students to feel more comfortable reading "at home each day with their parent/guardian, older sibling, or grandparent."
