PAKRAT Program Kicks Off Oct. 4

District 742 will kick off PAKRAT on Monday, Oct. 4 district wide and are really excited that our students in District 742 have read over 1,000,000 books read since we started running the program district wide in 2012.

PAKRAT provides books to all preschool through grade 3 students in District 742. PAKRAT has been funded with LEAF grants as well as generous grants given to LEAF from the Bernick’s Foundation (2012), The Morgan Family Foundation (2013) and the Otto Bremer Foundation (2014). As part of the program, students take a book home to read with their parent/partner each evening and then return the book, along with a brief worksheet about the book to their classroom teacher the next day.
