11 Years of One School, One Book!

April 13, 2018

Dr. Gerald B. Probe Elementary School in Alberta, Canada celebrated their 11th year of One School, One Book in 2018!  Learning Support Teacher, Michelle Dimnik has worked incredibly hard to bring and build and expand the program to her school each year.

Check out more great stuff happening on twitter here.

Every day leading up to their book title reveal, Dr. Gerald B. Probe School tweeted each of their previous One School, One Book picks. As you can see, they have read some awesome books together over the years! The Wild Robot Escapes by Peter Brown was chosen for their 11th year of reading together.

Michelle Dimnik hands out books to eager students.

The exciting kickoff event was covered by the local newspaper, you can read all about it here!

Wonderful robot artwork by students!

Since their book reveal, Dr. Gerald B. Probe students have created wonderful artwork and were even visited by a real robot!

Students dance with “pepper” the robot!

Dimnik is already planning next year’s read, and this time the entire Lethbridge School District of 14 schools will join together! In past years Dr. Gerald B. Probe has partnered with two other schools to read together, but this will be their first district-wide read. Dimnik says, “If it can happen like that on the Westside with three schools, can you just imagine what can happen with our whole district doing one book together?”

Check it out in the video below!

We have loved watching the program grow in Lethbridge and can’t wait to see what book they choose for the District next year!
