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.



We had our OSOB kick off assembly at Bassett today! The kids were so excited that the book we will be reading is CLEMENTINE!

We have had lots of slips coming in from home, and we had two raffle WINNERS today!

The Trichonal family sent in this great picture of the whole family reading together! #weloveit

Welcome to Chapter 1 of Clementine! We hope you enjoyed reading your first chapter Monday night. The trivia question for Chapter 1 was, "Why did Margaret cut her hair?" The answer was, she got glue in her hair in art class and was trying to get it out.

We picked 2 lucky winners today who got to pick a prize from the table in the office. Don't forget to put your answer in for chapter 2 tomorrow. Maybe you will be the lucky winner.

Clementine Business Partner Clues

Read each clue below to figure out which Westlake businesses are partnering with our elementary schools for One School, One Book. (You may need to use a map for help!) When you solve each clue, look for the One School, One Book poster somewhere near the entrance of the business. Once inside, look for “Clementine” somewhere inside the business. Then find an employee and let him or her know where you found “Clementine”. The employee will then give you a ticket to be entered in a weekly in-school raffle for prizes.

  1. Clementine wasn’t happy with how things were going in her life, so she thought this insurance agency work help her “life work” out a little better because of its name. It’s located in a large building on the northside of Center Ridge Road, just east of Stone House Grille.
  1. Clementine missed having a kitten, so she stopped by this “farm” on Center Ridge Road, just east of Health Campus Drive to look for a kitten. However, it turned out to be an insurance agency instead!

  1. Clementine’s parents took her to this fun place between Hilliard and Center Ridge Road, Her mom started teaching art classes there, while Clementine, her dad, and brother played in the pool.
