Farmingdale Elementary Schools Participate in Literacy Program

PARP thumbnail209552

Reading is Snow Much Fun! Bookopoly! Reading S’more at Camp SEM! Reading is Our Superpower! The PTA selected these four exciting themes for this year’s Pick A Reading Partner (PARP) program at Farmingdale School District’s elementary schools.

This month, Albany Avenue, Northside, Saltzman East Memorial, and Woodward Parkway Elementary launch their 2022 PARP program. This three-and-a-half-week program is designed to engage and involve parents, caregivers, and other adults in fostering a child’s love of reading. Learning to read is the most critical activity in a child’s education. Studies have shown that children who read at home are better prepared to succeed in formal education. The goal of a PARP program is to encourage children to read with a partner every day.

The PTA's PARP committees at Farmingdale Elementary Schools prepared fun-filled weeks, including assemblies and family nights. Some of these special activities include dress like your favorite character day, flashlight Fridays, snuggle up and read, book Bingo, living history museum, mystery masked readers, flipgrid contests, design a bookmark, find a cozy spot to read, and hats off to reading.

Developed in 1978 by the late State Senator James Donovan, Chairman of the State Senate Education Committee, the PARP program asks a partner (parent, grandparent, babysitter, older sibling, cousin, friend, etc.) to read with a child for at least 20 minutes daily, emphasizing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative. The choice of reading materials can vary from books to anything with printed words. The daily activity of reading together strengthens reading and communication skills in the child and strengthens their relationship.

Virtual After-School Tutoring

Virtual After School Tutoring thumbnail209299

On Monday, January 10, the school district will be launching our Virtual After-School Tutoring support for our quarantined students. With the increase of COVID infection rates, we have seen an increase in students who have needed to be quarantined. K-12 teachers have been providing instructional resources and support materials asynchronously through our learning platform, Schoology, for these students. However, we want to provide the students with more synchronous learning and/or social/emotional support. Students will be able to log into these Google Meets, ask questions and be provided instructional and emotional support.

This new virtual tutoring platform is organized by building. It provides a wide array of services for our general and special education students. Students with disabilities please note that there are additional supports listed to help you while you are in quarantine. If you have any questions, please contact your Special Education Chairperson.

Click here for links to each buildings’ after-school tutoring schedules.

The district will add more sessions based on need. The platform will be up and running by Monday, January 10, 2022, and will be open until February 18, 2022.
