Count Me In: One School One Book 2022

On Tuesday, November 8th, Bigelow students explored themes of this year’s One School, One Book Count Me In by Varsha Bajaj through several activities with their advisory groups.

Students visited virtually with the author Varsha Bajaj, who spoke about the power of a story and her journey as a writer. Following the author visit, students played a team-based Math game, as Math played a role in how the main characters in Count Me In became friends. Students ended with a community-building activity called Who Are We? to reflect how the main characters in the novel both acknowledged their own family traditions and routines, and also learned to appreciate the differences between one another.

Thank you to everyone involved in organizing and planning this event for our students, especially Ms. Summa, for so thoughtfully putting together this learning experience!

Finally, thank you to all Bigelow Families for your support of the PTO! It is through your support that the Bigelow PTO is able to underwrite special programs like One School, One Book for our students.
