MMS One School One Book
When: October 2023-February 2024

Mapleton Middle School has decided to continue our One School, One Book program, however, we will be partnering with Black River Middle School and making it "Two Schools, One Book"! Both schools will be reading the same novel school-wide and we are planning some activities across districts. 

We launched the program with a school-wide assembly on October 11th where our school nurse, Mrs. Patterson, shared about Traumatic Brain Injury. Each week students will read with their WIN class and have discussions around the book. 

The goal of the One School, One Book program is to captivate staff, students, and families with an opportunity to read, discuss, and engage around the same text to build background knowledge, promote character, and the importance of literacy.

The book, Restart by Gordon Korman, is about a boy who's been a bully and hanging out with the wrong friends. He gets a new start after a memory-loss-inducing accident. He knows he is Chase, but who is Chase? Soon he’s hearing stories of the alpha jock and bully who held a reign of terror over an entire school. Is that the person he was … and is destined to be again? Is it possible to restart? Each student and staff member will receive a copy of the book to find out.
