One Book One School!

Truman Elementary is excited to announce the launch of our whole school book club called “One Book, One School!” Your child has received his/her own copy of the book “Flora and Ulysses”, thanks to the profits from our 2021-22 book blast fundraiser. With the "One School, One Book" program, we aim to foster a community of readers within our school community. Everyone - students, parents, teachers, even administrative staff - will be participating and we can all reap the benefits. 

 "One School, One Book" is a novel program that includes children at all grade levels listening and/or reading the same book. Strange or daring as that may seem, it actually makes sound educational sense. Reading professionals recommend reading material out loud that is beyond a child's own reading level and when a whole school reads a book there's a lot to talk about. With your help we can continue to foster a community of readers at Truman Elementary. 

 We have a copy of this book for EVERY STUDENT and Staff Member at Truman Elementary; we also have Spanish copies if some homes would like a Spanish version! We have extra copies for parents (if you want your own) or for our local small business owners if they want to read along with us!
