Hilliard Elementary School

One School One Book

One School, One Book

\Welcome to the Westlake City Schools' One School, One Book Blog!

One School, One Book is a program designed to create a shared reading experience within our elementary school communities. A chapter book is chosen, every family receives a copy, and every family reads that book together at home over the course of a single month. Activities at school coordinate, promote and enrich the shared reading experience.

Welcome to OSOB 2018!

There was a fantastic turnout at Porter Library for the chapter read aloud! Thanks for coming and helping us celebrate the book together. Thanks to Carolyn Fain, Director of Youth Services, for reading to us!

Can you guess where this Hilliard preschooler found Clementine?

We love how this family with both Hilliard and Bassett students are working together to read and do student activities. Great job, kids!
