Project Cornerstone at Bubb — February 2020
This month’s book, Long Shot--Never Too Small to Dream by Chris Paul, is an autobiography of an NBA All-Star. As a child, he is one of the shortest players on his basketball team, but with hard work, determination, and the support of his family he is able to realize his dreams.
Goals of lesson include:
- Help students explore and discover their sparks (interests, dreams, passions, etc.)
- Identify their spark and goal champions. (People who will help.)
- Reflect upon and identify the support students receive from their peers, family, and community.
- Empower students to provide support to their peers, family, and community.
Ask your child to tell you more about:
- What matters to you? What sparks your interest?
- What is your biggest dream?
- What is your favorite thing to do, and how can I help you do it?
- What help do you need to reach your goals?
- Who will be your spark or goal champion (helps with taking steps to achieve a dream)?
A video reading of Long Shot--Never Too Small to Dream by Chris Paul can be found here.

A huge thanks to all parents and family members that volunteered for WATSA. A friendly reminder to log your volunteer time with the PTA. Volunteer hours enable us to apply for grants as well as maintain our non-profit status. You can log hours on the binder in the school office or online. Please consider all phone calls, meetings, emails, events (including set-up and clean up), any preparation work at home, travel time, etc. It doesn’t have to be related to WATSA.
