One School One Book




New Kent Elementary is proud to announce Lemonade Wars as our 2017 One School, One Book! Books will be sent home with the oldest student from each family at NKES on Friday, March 3rd. We will begin reading the book on Monday, March 6th and the calendar will be sent home with library classes. Please refer to that calendar often for the nightly readings and the upcoming events as we celebrate reading month!


We are excited to kick off the 2017 One School, One Book program! In an effort to support literacy, both inside and outside of the classrooms, we are encouraging all families and stakeholders who are involved with NKES to read this book alongside us. How cool would it be for students across ALL grade levels to discuss the same book! Or even as they are out in the community, get on and off the buses, or grab their lunch from the cafeteria! So, please join us as we begin reading Lemonade Wars on Monday, March 6, 2017. We have included a bookmark with the dates and suggested chapters to read and will announce daily trivia questions that the students can answer to win prizes! We also have a website you can access to check winners, questions, extension activities and even see our promo video. If you have any questions, contact us at the school.
