P.A.R.P. stands for Parents As Reading Partners.  Today the staff at Jackson School rolled out the red carpet for the month of March for students to read.  The program presents an exciting cliffhanger that the students find the conclusion to through reading.

Some of the characters from favorite childrens books were played out during this event like the Cat in the Hat, Miss Frizzle, Ramona, Harry Potter, Dr. Doolittle, Pippi Longstocking and Judy Moody were greeted by Brooke Mark and Ed Itor.

P.A.R.P. is a National program designed to encourage chidren to read at home with thier parent, guardian, grandparents, or siblings for at least 15 minutes each day.

Learning to read is the single most important activity in a child's education.  P.A.R.P. asks parents / guardians to encourage thier child to read, impressing upon them the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative.

Pictured below are some of the characters at todays event kickoff.

***NOTICE OF PUBLIC EVENT***

 

HAWLEY & BURLING ANNOUNCE FREE

HUNTER EDUCATION & SAFETY COURSE

Free 3-Course Series Begins October 1 at Batavia Rod & Gun Club

 

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R, I, C – Batavia) and Assemblyman Dan Burling (R, C, I – Warsaw) will be hosting a free Hunter Education and Safety Course, taught by Carl Hyde, Jr., beginning October 1, 2009 at the Batavia Rod and Gun Club.  Space is limited so interested persons should sign up today.

 

“I have worked hard to protect and promote our rural traditions, such as hunting, from excessive and overbearing legislative mandates, but I am a firm believer in responsible gun ownership.  That’s why I am pleased to help promote this free Hunter Education and Safety Course and look forward to offering more opportunities like this in our region,” said Hawley, who, as a member of the Assembly Tourism, Arts and Sports Committee, brought a number of individual sportsmen and groups to Albany to ensure their voices were heard during this year’s annual “Gun Day.”

 

“As passionate as I have been in fighting for Second Amendment rights, I have been equally passionate regarding gun safety and education.  Having firearms is not only a right, it is a responsibility.  When it comes to hunting or protecting our families, we owe it to our families and communities to ensure gun safety is practiced by all,” said Burling.

 

            The first Hunter Education and Safety Course, a three-part series, will begin on October 1 and participants must attend all three classes (Thursday, October 1 from 6 pm to 9 pm; Saturday, October 3 from 8 am to noon; and, Monday, October 5 from 6 pm to 9 pm).  All courses will be taught at the Batavia Rod and Gun Club.  Those interested in signing up should do so in person at Batavia Marine and Sporting Goods, located at 411 West Main Street in Batavia.

 

            For more information or other inquiries, please contact Assemblyman Hawley’s office at (585) 589-5780 or Assemblyman Burling’s office at (585) 786-0810.
