One School, One Book.

Chop Wood, Carry Water is the book we have selected this year as our One School, One Book read. Students will be encouraged to read and focus on one chapter a week, that's right just ONE. Each chapter is only 1-3 pages long. At the beginning of each week, I will email guided notes and, thoughts, challenges, and reflection questions for each chapter. I am looking forward to falling in love with the process of becoming great this year with our students and staff.
