We challenge our students to read for at least 400 minutes and complete the Bingo Card during the summer and keep track of their reading on the unique Beanstack site for Parsons ES.  Hundreds of schools and libraries across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books.  Beanstack will again be offering cash prizes to top-performing schools and libraries.  We will have a special treat in the Media Center at Parsons in August for the Top Readers!  Happy Reading, Parsons!
