Watauga Elementary School | Celebrates One School One Book

A group of students in costumes posing together.Watauga Elementary School celebrated our One School One Book Kickoff on October 4, 2018. My Father’s Dragon, by Ruth Stiles Gannett, was chosen as the book this year to read among faculty, staff, and students.

Book chapters are read each day in class, and we partner with students’ families in reading that same chapter each night.  The Kickoff was a great event! Watauga’s GATE program acted out a skit, portraying “live, speaking animals”, such as tigers, turtles and even a dragon!  Wild Island was the setting of the skit, complete with rocks, trees and a river! Mr. Greg Woods read the first chapter of the story to the audience, and a PowerPoint was shown about kindness; a theme throughout the book. WES had a “wild” time at our kickoff, and so did the dragon!
