“When you read a children’s novel – or more than one novel – across an entire district, you spark a community-wide conversation. That conversation takes place on playgrounds and parking lots, in grocery stores and churches, across your district. A conversation that is rich, involving hundreds and thousands of students and families, inspires a rich appreciation of literature and lifelong readers. It establishes a culture of family literacy.” ~Read to Them
IEC & PEC Families:
Join us as we continue our exciting One District, One Book initiative
January 2nd-March 16th
One District, One Book is a program designed to create a shared reading experience across our school community.
- We will vote on a popular children's novel.
- Each student receives a copy of the chosen book to keep.
- Then, every family reads that book together at home.
- The shared reading experience will be supported by enriching activities at school that enable children to share and experience the characters and world of the book.
Every family in our Elementary School Community reads the same book at the same time!
This Year's One District, One Book Selection is...
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary!
