Read for 2013
Looking forward to the New Year and celebrating reading have been a fun tradition at Parish Lower School for many, many years. Now we take advantage of this event to bring the third graders back to read in their old classrooms or library. Seeing their smiles and armfuls of books coming through the doors is more than nostalgic. One third grader said quietly to another, "It feels like coming home." I love the reading + smile = coming home equation. Our Head of Middle School kicked off the morning with a fantastic reading of Pierre by Maurice Sendak. Then, we all found a comfortable spot and for 33 minutes and 33 seconds, the only sound was the turning of pages.
