Arland D. Williams Jr. Elementary School celebrates literacy with the second annual One Book/One School reading event that kicked off this week.
Every WES family and WES staff member will receive a copy of the book “The Adventures of a South Pole Pig” by Chris Kurtz.
WES community partners will also receive copies of the book.
Families are encouraged to read two-three chapters a night Monday-Thursday,” said Peggy Burton, library director, WES. “The staff is encouraged to read along and to engage students in conversations about the book during the month of January.”
Each classroom will have their own stuffed toy Flora the pig and journal so that students can take her home and write about their experiences, said Burton.
The Family/Community Event is scheduled February 7, 2019. The event includes:
-Free pizza supper
-Activities
-Photo op
-Door prizes
-1 night only book fair
“This project is a wonderful way to get us all reading and talking about a great book while encouraging family, staff and community participation,” said Burton.
Each morning the principals will have a challenge question for students.
Funding for One Book/One School is from the following sponsors:
-Howell Asphalt
-Ada Davis Memorial Fund
-Title 1 Family Involvement
-WES Library
