On Thursday, Mar. 10, the Barringer Road PTO hosted PARP (Pick a Reading Partner) Family Bingo Night in the Barringer Road cafeteria. Parents, students, teachers and staff all showed up for an hour of bingo, popcorn, drinks, a poster contest, and the Scholastic Book Fair. There were several rounds of bingo offering participants many opportunities to win some great books! Mrs. Pickett organized this great event with the support of the PTO members, Barringer Road teachers, and emcee Mrs. Day.
PARP is an annual event that promotes the importance of reading outside school. Students choose parents, grandparents, or other adults with whom to read 15-20 minutes each night for 10 days. Students who complete their reading are eligible for a prize drawing.
The PTO also holds a book fair throughout the event to raise funds in support of school activities.
