One School, One Book program kicks off Read Across America Day
Community members read the first chapter of the One School, One Book selection The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney to generate excitement for the rest of the month. Each Blair Mill family received a copy of the book to create a shared reading experience within the Blair Mill school community and encourage reading at home. Throughout the month of March, students will answer daily trivia questions, listen to their teachers and staff read aloud from the selected book and participate in the class writing journal.
Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association and guided by a committee of educators, Read Across America is the nation’s largest celebration of reading.
