This month, Pieter B. will sponsor another
all-school book club called One School, One Book. This month every
student receives a copy of Patrick Skene Catling’s The Chocolate
Touch– and reads it at home from March 6 to March 23. We are
personally asking you to make the time so your family can
participate in this special activity.
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 School, One Book program, we aim to build a community of readers at our school. Everyone – students, parents, teachers and administrative staff – will be participating, and we can all reap the many benefits.
