2021 Our School Our Book Parent Letter
Reading Calendar for MV Our School Our Book
Staff Read Alouds for Charlotte's Web
Hello Mountain View Families!
To end our school year, Mountain View will begin a special project, an all-school book club called “Our School, Our Book,” from May 3 – May 24. Every student, in-person and remote, will receive a copy of the same book - Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White – and be asked to read it together at home using the reading schedule (see the back of this letter or the MV website).
Our goal is to create a Community of Readers by asking all Mustangs (students, parents, teachers, and staff) to read the same book at the same time. Your child will receive a copy of Charlotte’s Web during a special presentation in their classroom introducing the program and the book. Along with the book, you will receive a reading schedule calendar to keep up at home. You will be asked to read one to two chapters, about 15 minutes, each night. You can also listen to teachers and staff read by going to the Mountain View website, https://www.jcschools.org/7/home , and selecting the “Our School, Our Book” tab for links to audio recordings and more information about the program.
Please follow the reading schedule and do not read ahead. We would like for all to follow the schedule to promote “Our School, Our Book.” At school, your child will be invited to participate in trivia questions, and students may have activities in their classroom that go along with the book.
We are super excited to embark on this reading adventure, and we hope you will enjoy this special time as a family. With your help, we can build a Community of Readers at Mountain View. Go Mustangs!
