Author Mary Anne Capellino visited DeSales Catholic School students on Wednesday as part of the school's participation in P.A.R.P. (Parents as Reading Partners).

The nationally recognized fitness expert and author has written a series of children’s motivational picture books about EEEK the frog that are a delightful tool to help the entire family focus on happy, healthy lifestyles.

The P.A.R.P. fun continues from 6 - 7:30 p.m. Thursday with a special Family Literacy Night.  This event is open to the public and takes place at the Chestnut Ridge Road school. Highlights of the planned event include birds from Messinger Woods, service dogs sponsored by PAWS, a book swap, interactive and fun activities for kids and much more. Food trucks will also be available in the DeSales parking lot beginning at 5:30 p.m.

P.A.R.P. is a program that encourages parents to read with their children for at least fifteen minutes a day.  The suggested reading can be fun as well as informative. Parents and children can chose to read anything from books or magazines to anything with printed words. The daily activity of reading together boosts reading skills in children and also fosters the parent/child relationship.

DeSales is Eastern Niagara County’s only Catholic School, welcoming students of all faiths in Pre-School through Eighth grade. For more information call 433-6422 x407, or visit
