“One School, One Book”

“One School, One Book” – This school-wide project encourages reading. During this month-long program, each of the 500+ students in Kindergarten through 6th grade at John Beck Elementary School took the book, Because of Winn Dixie, home to their families. Each family read two chapters together nightly, then students answered trivia questions at school to reinforce their reading and keep the enthusiasm going. They also tied the story to a community service project. Students loved the program and parents saw the benefits. One parent commented… “My kids… asked me if we could read ahead…I was happy to see them so motivated.” Thank you for enriching students…for Life!
