One School, One Book
The Lemonade War

We are kicking off the "One School, One Book" program this year reading the book The Lemonade War.  This book follows brother and sister, Evan and Jessie, as they compete to see who can sell the most lemonade and the winner gets to keep all the money earned. 
Every child in grades Kindergarten-5th will be receiving a book that is theirs to keep.  We will be reading it at school and sometimes the students will be asked to read parts at home.  Included below are links to YouTube where you can listen to each chapter being read to you.

Post photos or videos of you and your family reading the book at home to our Facebook page or Twitter using the hashtags #schk12 #pantherpride #irvinglemonadewar.  

 At the conclusion of the book students will be given a chance to win a real lemonade stand they can take home and start their own business this summer.  More details to follow!
