The first grade students at Hanford-Dole Elementary enjoyed the first book club of the year in the school’s media center.

Guest reader Donna Hamilton, assistant principal, shared the book “Apples and Pumpkins.” After reading the book, Hamilton asked the students critical level thinking questions to give them an opportunity to really process the reading material.


Hanford-Dole’s Book Club is sponsored by grants from Target stores and Schneider Electric and by Communities In Schools-Rowan. Fran Simpson, Communities In Schools site coordinator, did a parent presentation on reading and writing to the parents as a follow-up on the book that was read. Hanford-Dole and Communities In Schools are committed to engaging the parents in school activities to better prepare students and parents to work together with the school.
