Dear Children’s School Families,
Here is an awesome example of what your contributions to our PTA give our children every month…
The One School, One Book Project is a school-wide diversity initiative directed at engaging our children with stories that feature diverse characters, including books that center people of color, gender diversity, LGBTQ identities, people with disabilities, immigration experiences, and ethnic, cultural and religious traditions that are historically excluded from traditional curriculum.
How it Works: A theme and books supporting that theme are selected each month by the OSOB committee. Every classroom enjoys reading and discussing the same Read-Aloud book. All books/resources are funded and made possible by your PTA.
Who We Are: The OSOB committee is made up of parents/guardians, teachers, librarians and specialists. All committed to diversity, literacy and most importantly, our children. You are always welcome to join!
Our Goal: We hope to help foster and further develop a school community in which all students see themselves in the pages of classroom texts, and are exposed to cultures and perspectives from our diverse community and beyond.
Here are the book selections for March and April. We hope you and your family enjoy!
