The Lemonade War                               INTRODUCTION "Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking to people, even grownups.  His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart--but not especially good at understanding people.  She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there is no telling who will win--or if their fight will ever end. "

What is One School, One Book?

 

One School, One book is a novel program that is created to have a singular reading experience within an entire school community. That means it is a shared reading experience that all staff and students at all grade levels will be reading, and at the same time. We are very excited to start this school-wide reading program. All students and families will read one chapter of the book while following the given reading schedule.

 

Research has shown that reading material out loud that is beyond a child’s own reading level promotes language development and early literacy skills. We also believe that you can and should continue reading chapter books with your older children, even when they are able to read by themselves. We have selected a title that can be followed and understood and enjoyed by all students, but will also captivate and stimulate older children.

 

At a special school-wide assembly held Friday, January 26th, each child received the book and a tailored reading schedule attached to the back of the book.
