What are Family Reading Parties?

FRPA program offered by APS Title I Family Engagement to empower parents as partners in family reading.  Parents have an opportunity to share ideas that are working at home.  Teachers will also have an opportunity to build relationships with parents and share reading strategies parents can use at home to strengthen student learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do the books come from?

Teachers select the books at our Title I office located at Lincoln Complex (912 Oak St. SE Building M) or online.  We provide 10 books per party in English, Spanish and Bilingual.

How many parents do you invite?

The program is designed for a small number of parents so they will feel comfortable.  The magic number is 10 parents, so when planning a party, call and send flyers to 10 parents from your classroom.  (Who have students with greatest academic need).

How long do the parties last and why is it a party?

A Family Reading Party lasts about 45 minutes.  It starts with an ice breaker and sharing to get parents comfortable.  You can use Title I Family Engagement funds to pay for snacks and drinks such as coffee, water, or tea.  If you have a parent that wants to make calls and ask parents to bring snacks that works too!

Does Title I provide books for other reading events?

No, books are only for Title I Family Reading Parties.
