This year, Westside Park has adopted the One School, One Book program. The mission: to create a culture of literacy in every home. Recently, at a reading assembly, all of the WSP students received a copy of the book, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, by Beverly Cleary. Students will be listening to the story and following along each day and are invited to take the book home to share it with their families. Students will participate in fun activities and trivia daily as it relates to the story. WSP is building the love of reading with their students, staff and families one page at a time.
