Three Schools, One Book coverA Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Our three elementary schools are excited to kick off our "Three Schools, One Book" initiative with you this weekend! Here's how it works:

  • By Friday of this week, each family will have received a copy of the book, The Year of Billy Miller. This book is yours to keep!
  • Each night, all families are encouraged and asked to read the assigned chapter with their elementary school child(ren).
  • The next school day, students will be able to participate in a trivia raffle, based on the prior night's assigned chapter.
  • The entire book will be completed by the end of February.

The intent of this initiative is to encourage families reading together nightly, as well as to further our efforts to unite our district.

Please be on the lookout on Friday afternoon for your family's copy of the book and the schedule, both of which will be coming home with your child.

Have a wonderful weekend, and stay warm and safe!
- KC Chapman, Principal
