Reinhard students gathered excitedly during a visit from Debbie DeGrassi, children’s librarian at the Bellmore Memorial Library. Ms. DeGrassi, who is fondly nicknamed “Miss Debbie,” read Gareth Edwards and Guy Parker Rees’ “Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner” to celebrate the school’s participation in the New York State PTA’s Pick a Reading Partner Month.

The goal of PARP is for students to read 50,000 minutes, which are currently being tallied on a bulletin board. Throughout the month, mystery readers share their favorite books with students, and the PARP Patrol looks for students who are actively reading.
