One District, One Book

One District, One Book is a district-wide book club. Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader. But it is also a fun, worthwhile family activity. With the One District, One Book program, we aim to build a community of readers at our schools. Everyone - students, parents, teachers, administrators, and even community members - will be participating, and we can all reap the many benefits.

"When we read together, we connect. Together, we see the world. Together, we see each other."

--Kate DiCamillo, author of The Tale of Despereaux

Enjoy! We hope both you and your student enjoy reading about the unlikely hero, Despereaux - and his adventures with Princess Pea, and the rats in the dungeon, and...a spool of thread. "When a whole school reads a book, there's a lot to talk about." With your help, we can build a Community of Readers in our district.
