Goochland County Public Schools officially introduced this year’s One District, One Book (ODOB) program today. Our elementary schools each held a kickoff assembly, at which time all 1,097 elementary students received a copy of E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web.
Copies of the book were also distributed to county leaders, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, and food services staff, so that conversations around this year’s ODOB selection can flourish within the school-community.
The program is designed to foster shared literacy experiences at home, and the division has asked families to commit to 10-15 minutes of reading each weekday evening during the month of February.
You can learn more about the program in my January 12th post.
