One Book One School

Dessert First by Haillie DurandMarch 19-23 every child and staff member at Jason Lee Elementary will be given their very own (to keep) copy of “Dessert First,” by Hallie Durand. There will be a published schedule to read a set amount of chapters each day. In order to make the book accessible to all, there will be recordings of each chapter on the Jason Lee website.

A few volunteers are needed to come in during breakfast time, March 19-23, to read aloud to the students as they eat their breakfast. Chapters are short and only take about 3-5 minutes to read. If you want to read the assigned chapters for the day or partner/group up and share the readings that works. Please contact Kristi Herling (509-539-4270) or email if you are interested in reading at breakfast time.

This will be a great week to all read together!!
