2015-2016 Community Read Topic and Title Announced

Bully Awareness:  Exploring Empathy and Tolerance

As part of our school’s vision and mission, our community comes together every fall to discuss a global topic during an event called Community Read Day.  Over time, we have used this venue to bring a great variety of universal issues and perspectives to our students and our stakeholders.  Community Read is a unique feature of our school, and each year we are able to tailor it to our unique needs as a community of learners.  At an earlier site-based meeting, a global and introspective topic was suggested and has been investigated by a team that included teachers and students. 

This year our school would like to take this opportunity to start meaningful dialogue in our community on the use of empathy and power of tolerance to prevent bullying.  During the spring, we allowed students to select a book through a school-wide voting process.  We are also offering an alternate title.  Please select one of the following books to read over this summer and be prepared to join us in a meaningful conversation this fall.

Primary Text:

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

 Alternate Text:

Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tell Their Stories
