Reading is the key to success at school and beyond. As a K-8 school, we want to encourage all our students at Park to read great books. We are excited about our new school wide reading program -- Wolf Pack Book Battle. We are promoting books off the Illinois State Media Library Association lists (Monarch, Bluestem, and Caudill). Multiple copies of these book will be available in the Media Center. Students are encouraged to read as many books off the list as they can. Then, students will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites for the state awards in March and then in our school’s own Alpha Awards at the end of the year.
