One Book- One School 2016
So, Why Did We All Wear Yellow Today?!?
One Book-One School - The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies
Students all received a OBOS yellow bracelet and some informational materials to bring home to parents. If your child brings his/her book home, we encourage you to read and discuss the book as a family.
Each day, a trivia question will be asked on the previous day's chapter. Students with correct answers will be in a class raffle. One student per class will win a prize each day! Prizes include fun yellow and/or lemony items like pencils, stickers, bouncy balls, etc.
Twice during OBOS, primary and intermediate classes will buddy up for fun activities.
This year's book fair April 27-29 will carry the rest of the books in this popular series.
We are very excited to build community around this book! Themes include sibling relationships, competition v. cooperation, and self-acceptance. There are also a lot of math and business connections we can make with students.
Please consider joining in and reading with us!
Fundraising for Alex's Lemonade Stand
We haven't quite reached lemonade stand weather here in Chicagoland, but if you wish to run a stand with your child in the coming weeks and donate the proceeds, we welcome that! We are doing a schoolwide change drive; containers will be in each classroom, the main office, and the book fair.
We have an online donating site as well at the below link. Our school goal is to raise $500. We appreciate any help you can give!
