Our village is not limited to students, teachers, and administrators, but includes our support staff, school nutrition staff, custodial staff, bus drivers, community partners, feeder schools and, yes, parents and guardians.

The PRINCIPAL'S BOOK CLUB is designed to increase comprehension and promote the joy of reading. Each month a book will be featured for discussion. Students will read the selected book and write a reflection of what they read to submit to the principal. Several students will be chosen each month to eat breakfast, chat, reflect and expound on the BOOK OF THE MONTH.
 
The BOOK OF THE MONTH for December 2014 is The Polar Express. The author of the book is Chris Van Allsburg.

Book Overview: 
One Christmas Eve many years ago, a boy lies in bed, listening hard for the bells of Santa’s sleigh, which he has been told by a friend do not exist. Later that night he hears not bells but a very different sound. He looks out his window and is astounded to see a steam engine parked in front of his house! The conductor invites him to board the Polar Express, a train filled with children on their way to the North Pole. The train takes the children to the center of the city, where Santa and the elves have gathered for the giving of the first gift of Christmas. The boy is chosen to receive this first gift. Knowing that he can choose anything in the world, he decides on a simple gift: one silver bell from Santa’s sleigh. Santa cuts a bell from a reindeer’s harness and the delighted boy slips it into his bathrobe pocket as the clock strikes midnight and the reindeer pull the sleigh into the sky. When the children return to the train, the boy realizes the bell has fallen through a hole in his pocket. Heartbroken, he is returned to his home. In the morning, his little sister finds one small box with the boy’s name on it among the presents. Inside is the silver bell! The boy and his sister are enchanted by its beautiful sound, but their parents cannot hear it. The boy continues to believe in the spirit of Christmas and is able to hear the sweet ringing of the bell even as an adult.
