Leary Lions are enjoying this year's One School, One Book event. This event is intended to promote literacy across the grades, foster a love for reading and build school spirit as we all enjoy a good read together. Every family in our school will receive a copy of this year’s novel, A Boy Called Bat, to share, read and keep. If time permits in your busy schedule, it is our hope that you can enjoy this novel together as a family. The novel will be brought home by the eldest child in your family. Monday to Friday your child will be expected to read a chapter or be read to (No readings take place on the weekend). Use the link above to listen to the daily chapter read by a staff member or special guest. Students will have the opportunity to answer a question at school about the assigned chapter. If their answer is correct their name will then be entered into a daily draw for a prize.
During the first two weeks of February, your child will be offered the opportunity to be involved in fun extension projects connected to the novel to be completed at home. These projects are voluntary but encouraged to help your child get the most out of the event. These projects may be completed by individual students or by families working together that would like to participate. Projects will be displayed Tuesday, February 21st - Friday, February 24th.
One Service Project we will be undertaking is a fundraiser in which we are asking each Leary Lion, if they are able, to bring $2 to help wildlife rescue. Money raised will be sent to our local BC SPCA to support their Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre.
There will be a school Art Contest to design a new front cover for the novel and the chosen artist will then be provided with a canvas to paint their cover. Their painting will be hung in the library as a record of the 2023 One School, One Book event.
