On October 3rd, Willowdale kicked off an exciting new book club called: One School, One Book. Thanks to the generosity of our PTO, every family is receiving a copy of the same book: Newberry winner The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.

With the One School, One Book program, we strive to build a community of readers at our school. Everyone (students, parents, teachers, and staff) will be participating and we can all benefit!

Families will be asked to read about 15 minutes per night (**see Calendar document below). Weekends were left open in case families need to use those days to catch up. In school, we will share daily trivia questions over the announcements. On our school web site, you will find the suggested reading calendar as well as other activities you can choose to take part in as a family.

We can’t wait to hear our school community talking about the mighty silverback gorilla, Ivan, and all his friends at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall. With your help, we can build a community of readers at Willowdale.


Happy Reading!
