May 9, 2018 - Lenape Regional High School District Board Highlights

2018-2019 One Book Theme Announced

18-19 One Book Windows & Mirrors theme. Which characters, emotions, or moments reflect or give a glimpse into your own life?
  • Director of Curriculum and Instruction Heather Xenakis presented “Windows and Mirrors” as the 2018-2019 One Book theme.  The idea is that books serve as windows and mirrors for their readers.  Students and staff will be able to choose from 5 different books which have a common theme of characters facing adversity.  The challenge for the reader will be to identify which characters, emotions, or moments reflect or give a glimpse into their own lives.  For a complete list of the 5 books, please visit the One Book website.
