PARP and Read for Ronald McDonald Charities
We are excited to announce that Malta Avenue students will be participating in the Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) program. The PARP program will kick off on Friday, March 3rd and will conclude on Friday, March 31st. PARP is a celebration of the joy of reading together! The PARP program is designed to encourage children to read at home with their parents or caregivers for 20 minutes each day. As part of our PARP program this year, we are excited to announce that we have partnered again with Read for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). During the month of March, students will be challenged to track each minute they spend reading and will ask family and friends to sponsor their efforts. All proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000. If we reach that goal, I will be planning a popcorn party for all of our students. Please see the enclosed materials to learn about RMHC.
SPAC Dance Residency
On February 16th our 5th grade students had the opportunity to perform for Malta Ave students and families in our beautiful auditorium. Leading up to their performances, they had worked incredibly hard each week since the end of November with highly-trained SPAC teaching artists and musicians to learn a dance. They did an outstanding job! We are incredibly grateful that we had the opportunity to partner with the SPAC Dance Residency Program again this year to bring Malta students a world-class dance experience.
