On Monday, January 2nd, students will attend our 11th ANNUAL ONE SCHOOL ONE BOOK TITLE REVEAL assembly! We are sure you will hear all about it! Each family will receive a copy of our selected book to read together throughout the month.
Your child is not expected to read this book independently, as it may not coincide with his/her reading level. Parents should read the chapters aloud to their child(ren). Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader. It is also a fun, worthwhile family activity.
With the One School, One Book program, we aim to build a community of readers at our school. Everyone – students, parents, teachers and administrative staff – will be participating and we can all reap the many benefits.
A tailored reading schedule will accompany the book. Your family will be asked to read one chapter each evening (Monday-Thursday) which is approximately 10-15 minutes per night.
In school, your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive listening.
I would like to personally thank the Westmoreland PTO for continuing to sponsor this program and allowing this wonderful reading journey to take place.
This unique opportunity would not have been possible without you!
We look forward to talking about this great story with both you and your child during the month. “When a whole school reads a book, there is a lot to talk about.” With your help, we are truly building a community of readers at Westmoreland School.
