Gill Elementary students took a virtual trip to New York City Monday morning, as part of the "One School, One Book" initiative happening this month in seven Farmington Public Schools.
At each school, every family and staff member will receive a copy of the book, thanks to support from PTAs, the Farmington Community Library Friends of the Library and West Oaks Civitan. Families are asked to read one chapter of the book each day, which they can discuss the next day with anyone in their building.
The schools will host special events, including kick-off assemblies, guest readers and family visits to the Farmington Community Library.
In their second year, Gill, Longacre and Lanigan are joined this year by Kenbrook, Forest, Wood Creek and Beechview. Gill and Longacre students will read The Cricket in Times Square; the others are reading The World According to Humphrey, which Gill and Longacre read last year.
