On behalf of the Babylon School District, Parents as Reading Partners Chair Janine Logan accepted the 2010-2011 PARP Award at the Suffolk PTA’s Principals' and Presidents' Dinner at the Hyatt Regency in Hauppauge, New York.
        
“The Babylon K-6 PTA Parents as Reading Partners Program from 2011 was recognized as the leading program in Suffolk County," Logan said. "It was a wonderful  event and a great honor for our PTA and our district. The PARP theme for the year was ‘Discover the Magic of Reading and Poetry.’"
         
Parents as Reading Partners (PARP) is a program designed to foster the love of reading in children by asking parents to set aside a few minutes each day to read with their children. Thanks to the hard work provided by Mrs. Logan and the rest of the PARP committee, Babylon students are well on their way towards becoming lifelong readers.
