The Chocolate Touch

We are excited to launch our Annual "One Book One School” reading program! Whitehall Elementary purchased books for each of our face to face students (K5-5th) and staff members! Participating in a school-wide reading program such as “One Book One School” helps build a community of readers and a sense of belonging within our school. Families reading together help children listen better and longer, build bigger vocabularies, and develop a positive attitude about books and learning. Reading professionals recommend that families read aloud to children even when they are able to read by themselves. When an entire school reads together, it generates excitement about reading and being part of a fun program. We will start reading the book together Monday, April 19th. You are encouraged to read along with your child each night as well. Students will receive a bookmark with dates and chapters for each day.

Fast Facts:

• Monday, April 19th: THE BIG REVEAL! Each student will receive a copy of the book and a bookmark with dates to help your family keep track of the reading each night. Mrs. Bufford will read the first chapter to students.

• April 19th – May 5th: Read. Connect. Enjoy. We’ll read in school and invite you to reread together at home each night.

What else? ★ We strongly encourage each family to read the book aloud together. ★ Daily trivia questions and prizes will be given. Guest speakers will be reading to our students.★ Have fun reading!

Top Secret Mission

No Mission is Impossible for Our World Changers

Our students were assigned a secret mission. Each class in our building had a mission to spread kindness. They wrote thank you notes and some even sang to some our unsung heroes in the building. Take a look below.

Lenny the Leprechaun Visted Whitehall

We could never find him, but he left behind a few clues!
