One School, One Book

This month, Tri County will be participating in a community school reading program called One School, One Book. The book Tri County families will be reading is titled The Mouse and the Motorcycle, by Beverly Cleary.

The Kick Off took place on Monday, Feb. 17 in the school auditorium. The festivities included a real motorcycle driven into the auditorium by Mr. Gronemeyer and life sized characters to excited the kids about the book.

After the Kick-Off, students returned to their rooms and teachers read chapter one to students. As a special and generous gift from the Tri County PTO, students were given copies of the book to read at home as a family.

At the end of each school day, principal Jesse Gronemeyer asked a question from the chapter that each family read the day before. A daily drawing was held for correct answers and the winners were put in a basket for a prize at the end of the week.
