One District, One Book

One District One Book:  The Vanishing Coin

Each year, the elementary schools in District 742 celebrate “I Love to Read” month with a very special book selection that all families can enjoy. Every evening, the students read one to two chapters of the book with their family and come to school ready to answer the daily trivia question and participate in other reading activities.                    

One District/One Book Kickoff at Scheels! Scheels is sponsoring One District/One Book this year and kicking our book off from 10:00am to 2:00 pm tomorrow. PAKRAT book bus will be parked in the parking lot and you can bring a book to donate for the book bus. Scheels will be collecting them in a shopping cart inside the store. Scheels will have magician, fudge samples, soccer station, coloring sheet table, a scavenger hunt and a campfire reading circle.
