Monrovia Elementary just finished their first One School, One Book. Marianne Berlin had this to say:
We just finished our first One School, One Book. Oh my, movie night was over 550 people for the showing of the Willy Wonka movie 1971 version. This was the most successful reading program we have attempted as a whole school. The parents are extremely complimentary and anxious for more whole school reading! These pictures our from our movie night, our kick-off supper, and “Willy Wonka” passing out candy to all students. That’s actually me!
