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 the book, participate in other literacy activities, or host guest speakers.
Reading quality literature together with their adult, 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 a light dinner. Our budget helps determine how many students can be served by this group. Right now we have 20 students and their parents in the club. Requesting $2,500 plus cost reimbursement.
