    How Does the Partnership Place Parent Center Work?

    • A teacher will fill a “prescription” out for your child with their need addressed (literacy/math and skill area)
    • Find an activity or game you and your child would enjoy playing
    • Take it to the Library to check out the item with Mrs. Stevens!
    • You do NOT have to have a prescription to check out an item! Always feel free to take a look around, check out what you and your family would enjoy, and return for someone else to enjoy!
