March is Reading Month!

March is Reading Month at Cottle Elementary! On behalf of the Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) PTA Committee, we have some fun activities lined up to continue to foster our students’ love of reading!

You should have received reading logs (Gr. K-3) or book review outlines (Gr. 4-5) from our wonderful librarian, Ms. Vinnie. Help or encourage your child to participate in tracking their reading over the month; turning in the log or book review at the end of the month will earn the children a PARP Reading Certificate!

Above is a calendar with dates and themes for our exciting Reading Spirit Fridays and our Virtual Author Visits.

On March 16th at 10am, Tracey Baptiste, author of The Jumbies series and other novels for emerging readers, will Zoom with grades 4-5. Check out her Amazon page to order books for your reader in advance!

On March 24th at 10am, Alyssa Capucilli, author of the Biscuit the dog series and other early readers, will Zoom with grades K-3. Parents have a chance to order signed books by the author at a discount through 3/31 at this link. Use Discount Code: VIP20

Please feel free to contact us at with any questions, and have a great month of reading!
