The 2019 - 2020 One Book theme is titled, “Search for Self.” The idea behind the theme is to encourage students to think in terms of what they want to do in life and how they will get there. This theme also gives everyone the opportunity to reflect on how they can continue to move forward down the road to self-improvement.
For the 2019 - 2020 school year, students and staff can choose from five (5) different books which have a common theme of characters facing to better themselves.
