Tamarac Elementary School students enjoyed “record-breaking reader” activities in the library as part of the building’s PARP celebrations. Staff developer Norma LaFata and librarian Lori Capozzi had students work on different reading-themed breakout activities focused on several physical and digital puzzles.

Students collaborated to analyze, evaluate and interpret different clues to solve the puzzles. Younger graders participated in picture book and author scavenger hunts. Tamarac’s PARP committee provided prizes to students for cracking codes and solving the puzzles. The fun-filled activities got students excited about reading!

Tamarac Elementary has partnered with the Harlem Wizards for a fitness-focused fundraiser. As part of the WizFit challenge, students were encouraged to collect donations while learning about fitness and character education. Students watched interactive videos where they learned basketball tricks and activities coached by members of the Harlem Wizards. As a culmination of the fundraiser, some of the Wizards visited Tamarac Elementary School to put on a performance.

During the Harlem Wizards’ show, students participated in dances and watched their teachers showcase their basketball skills. Students raised nearly $15,000 for Tamarac Elementary School and its PTA, surpassing its goal of $10,000. For beating the goal, Tamarac Principal Dr. DeBello was duct-taped to the gym wall!
