Marcy PTO Hosts ‘Read Like a Warrior – Celebrity Edition’

dr bellair reads to students This year, Marcy Elementary School’s “Pick a Reading Partner” (PARP) theme was “Read Like a Warrior.”  As part of this program, on Friday, Feb. 1, Marcy PTO hosted “Read Like a Warrior – Celebrity Edition” at Marcy Elementary.

During this event, the students enjoyed listening to books read by many “celebrity” readers. Some of the celebrity readers included Superintendent Dr. Brian Bellair, Principal Kim Newton, Rachael Witter from WUTR News, The Utica College Women’s Hockey Team, Whitesboro High School athletes, Maynard Fire Department firefighters, and some of the parents of Marcy Elementary students who work for law enforcement agencies. The students had fun collecting autographs from their favorite celebrities!

While enjoying their delicious snack of milk and cookies, students were able to listen to other student celebrity readers in the cafeteria. The students read a book of their choice and became a celebrity for the night! All who attended enjoyed the experience.

Thank you to everyone who participated!
