On January 25, all Highland elementary school students were introduced to their common reading book through the One District One Book Program, sponsored through The Highland Foundation. This annual grant provides one book for all students in grades K-5 (approximately 1,355) and families to read together, stressing the importance of reading at home. ODOB provides excitement for students with activities at school and in the community. This year’s common book is: A Boy Called Bat by Elana K. Arnold. A Boy Called Bat is the first book in a funny, heartfelt and irresistible series starring an unforgettable young boy on the autism spectrum. The program runs from January 28 through the end of February. Happy reading!
