One Book, One School

Every summer all Bigelow students and staff read the same book as part of Bigelow’s One Book, One School Program. In the fall students discuss the book in their community blocks.

The goal of the program is to create a more inclusive community through participation in a common reading experience of a book that reflects a central theme incorporating Bigelow’s core values.

Thank you to all the parents for your support of the PTO. It is through your support that we are able to underwrite special programs like this for our children.
