Parr’s Ridge Elementary School


In their ongoing educational partnership with Parr’s Ridge Elementary School in Mt. Airy, the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Airy recently provided funding for their “Books for Kids” program.  This program allowed every Pre-K and Kindergarten student to select a free book of their own to take home.  The teachers selected a variety of appropriate grade level Scholastic books. Volunteers put labels in the books and wrote the students’ names in their books.

The Kiwanis Club of Mount Airy recently provided its annual education donation to the Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers of Parr’s Ridge Elementary School, Mount Airy.The funds will be used to purchase instructional materials to promote letter recognition, letter sounds, and reading.
