Students and staff at Harrison Elementary on Thursday joined in the biggest book club in Lakewood as the school rolled out its One School One Book program with quite the fanfare.
A kickoff assembly to fill the students in on the fun ahead in reading Jacqueline Davies' “Lemonade War” included the St. Ed’s Trash Team and the Harrison Tappers. Kenny Crumpton of Fox 8 helped prime the excitement by holding a discussion with a group of students on the joy of reading the day before.
The One School One Book program is a nationwide movement to get kids excited and interested in reading. The program aims to make reading a community and family affair. Harrison students and staff will read the book and families are encouraged to read it as well. Special guests such as Central Office administrators and Harrison D.A.R.E. Officer Acklin have been invited to read it as well.
