Winthrop Avenue students are being featured as Bellmore Star Readers during this year’s feature of Pick a Reading Partner. 

During the television/movie PARP-themed event, held from Oct. 2-25, students have been encouraged to read an additional 15 minutes each day with a partner. The school has set a goal to collectively read an additional 35,000 minutes this month and is striving for 100% participation. 

Principal Sally Curto told the student body, “You need to be dedicated to your commitment to read. You become better readers by reading.”

Throughout the event, photos of mystery readers will be placed on the PARP bulletin board in the main hallway, and students will have the opportunity to guess who the mystery reader is using Google Forum on their Chromebooks. At the end of the month, the classrooms with the most minutes and participation logged will be recognized.  

Winthrop Avenue faculty and staff also thank PTA PARP representatives Jen Kregler and Nikki Zimberg for hosting the event and designing the creative bulletin board.
