One School One Book

All three elementary schools in Cocalico will unite home and school through the
One School, One Book Family Reading Program!

On Thursday, January 20, each elementary family will receive a copy of Ranger in Time, Rescue on the Oregon Trail. Readers will follow, Ranger, a golden retriever, on his exciting journey with the Abbott family as they travel along the Oregon Trail.

During the next three weeks, students and families will read the book together at home while celebrating and exploring the novel at school. It’s all part of One School, One Book, a unique, national family literacy program. This initiative from the non-profit organization, Read to Them, is designed to strengthen the educational connection between home and school.

“Reading a common book together turns out to be a terrific way to unite a school community and increase parental involvement. Reading aloud at home ensures students come to school prepared to read and to succeed – in school and in life,” explains Read to Them Director of Programs, Bruce Coffey.

Staff members have recorded themselves reading a chapter of the book so that children and their family can listen and read along with the story at home. Please click on the staff members' pictures below to hear these recordings. In addition, a copy of the reading schedule can be found by clicking here.
