One School, One Book Begins again at Pieter B.

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.
