GPISD Participates in Texas Reads One Book

Houston, Texas: On Monday, April 3, Galena Park ISD third graders joined Dallas Cowboys head coach, Jason Garrett, as he kicked off Texas Reads One Book with his videotaped reading of the first chapter of The Lemonade War. Every student received their own copy of the book, and many elementary campuses went all out to create excitement for the vent by decorating hallways and classrooms.

During the next three weeks, families will take up where Coach Garrett left off, reading a chapter from the book each night. Daily trivia questions, discussions, and other activities in the classroom ensure that reading takes center stage in the home, school and community throughout the duration of the program. The Texas Reads One Book program’s goal is to encourage family involvement in the reading process and boost student engagement with books.
