Baylis hosted several activities in celebration of PARP week! Baylis alumni (current Syosset High School students) came back for a special visit to read a selection of award-winning picture books to current Baylis students. The staff was excited to host their former students in their classrooms. Additionally, the entire school participated in “Drop Everything and Read,” an activity in which all students and staff spontaneously took out their favorite book and read for fun. The PTA also hosted an author presentation with Max Brallier, who expressed his passion for creative writing and shared some of his childhood experiences as inspiration for his books. During the “Buddy Up and Read” activity classrooms were paired together to celebrate reading with new partners. As a culminating event, students wore their favorite jerseys to support Student Council’s “Wear a Jersey” Spirit Day.

While Baylis students enjoyed all these special reading experiences, the school continues to celebrates its love of reading every day.
