About this Campaign
Irving One Book One Family is a book club that students in grades 6-8 can participate in with an adult family member. Once a month the entire group is given a book. The student and parent read their copy of the book and we gather in the evening one time a month, to discuss a book or participate in other literacy activities based on that book.
Reading with the same quality literature builds important connections between students, their parents, and school. We create a non-threatening environment of acceptance to hold higher level discussions about this excellent literature. This pushes students and parents to read "outside their comfort zone" and leads to wonderful discussions and diversity of opinions. After our discussion we like to share a light dinner and continue to build our connections with each other.
Funding covers both the purchase of the books as well as helps us provide the dinner. Our budget helps determine how many students can be served by this group. Right now we have 28 students and their parents in the club. Requesting $2,500 plus cost reimbursement.

Thank you for your generous support of LPS students through Fund a Need. We assure you that your gifts will still support the purpose of this Fund a Need campaign, even though school looks a lot different today than it did a few months ago. If this campaign cannot be accomplished this school year, your gifts will be safely held and available for the same use next year.
We appreciate you and your partnership in giving LPS students and staff the best possible tools for an amazing education. Thank you for your support!
