Sandy Hook School Begins A Month

Of Schoolwide Reading

By Eliza Hallabeck

This year’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) sponsored One School One Read book for Sandy Hook School was announced on Friday, March 3, in two morning assemblies.

Students in fourth grade teacher Kate Anderheggen’s class acted out a skit to announce this year’s One School One Read during both assemblies.

“The One School One Read for 2012 is going to be Stewart Little,” said the students together during the first assembly of the morning.

One School One Read is a PTA-sponsored program that has each student in the school read the same book over the course of one month.

“Thank you and happy reading,” Ms Anderheggen’s class said at the conclusion of the morning’s first assembly.

Before the classes attending the ceremony were dismissed, teachers were given paper bags with enough copies of E.B. White’s Stewart Little to hand out to each of their students.

During the next month, the Sandy Hook School community will celebrate reading Stewart Little through classroom activities, take-home exercises, and more.

Last school year’s One School One Read was Jacqueline Davies’s The Lemonade War, and the year before that the school read Marion Dane Bauer’s A Bear Named Trouble.
