In January, all four of the elementary campuses will participate in One School, One Book and read the same novel. At the same time, the middle school will launch “Read it Forward.” HPMS will be flooded with multiple copies of two novels that share the same themes as the elementary novel. A Raider who finds a book can read the selection, sign his/her name inside, sign his/her name on the poster in the library, then “Read it Forward” to another reader. There will be trivia contests and activities tied to the books throughout the month as well. The public libraries will also have book suggestions on display for older readers based on the themes. All of these efforts will comprise the first-ever “HP Reads” which will encourage the entire HP Community to begin the year reading together!
