Today, CUSD #305 launched its second annual district book club, previously known as One District, One Book, now changed to Knightly Reading: A Family Literacy Event. Every student in Kindergarten through Sixth grade has received a copy of the same book - The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling. Over the next several weeks families across the district will be taking the time to read together with their children every night.
With the Knightly Reading program we aim to build a community of readers at the schools in our district. Everyone - students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members - can participate, and we can all reap the many benefits. Look for additional copies of the book located in local businesses stuffed with a daily reading guide. Additional copies for students in Seventh and Eighth grade are available at school to those who want to read along.
This program has been made possible, in part, by the District #305 Education Foundation. Check out our district website and new app to watch for more news and updates as we move through this book together, as a district of readers!
