The Daniel Boone Middle School is implementing our third annual school-wide Whole School Read literacy initiative during the month of May. The purpose of our Whole School Read is to emphasize the importance of literacy and to increase student achievement by building a community of readers. The book we have chosen to read this year is Restart, by Gordon Korman, which is a book about a middle school student who is known as a bully. After having a really rough fall, he ends up with amnesia and has to make choices about what kind of person he is going to be, especially when everyone still views him as a bully. The topics connect to our OLWEUS anti-bullying program and our middle school mission and vision. After reading the book, students will participate in an end-of-year celebration, which will occur virtually at the end of May.
We have provided the reading schedule as well as a faculty created audiobook for students to access from home. Each day there will be a message, discussion questions, and a reading assignment posted in Schoology to the class pages. We hope that students consider joining us in our reading of this book and also share it with other members of the family!
Thank you, and happy reading!
