Everybody Reads

Whenever we read a great book, we can’t wait to share our experience with others. But what if everyone read the same book at the same time?

“Everybody Reads” is a school-wide reading project that encourages students and adults of all ages to read the same book and participate in thought-provoking discussions and activities. The school’s goal is to nurture and further develop its reading community by having everyone read the novel Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan. The book follows the intersecting stories on an immigrant boy and a long-bullied American fifth grader, who both learn that things aren’t always as they seem, in what Publisher’s Weekly has called an “engrossing and poignant tale.”

Join us in our first Everybody Reads adventure today and during February, educational lessons will be happening to complement the book. Themes throughout the book include Diversity & Tolerance and Friendship. As more individuals get their chance to read the book, student and staff reviews of it continue to be added to a display in the media center with various bulletin boards throughout the hallways and classrooms inviting interactive responses to the book. The project will culminate when co-author Sarah Weeks visits our school April 6th to speak with students.

Everybody Reads gives the school an opportunity to build an even stronger community of readers, but it also encourages constructive discussions and learning between students and staff members around respect for differences. West would like to invite you to be part of our school-wide reading project. Read and discuss Save Me a Seat with your children. Invite them to tell you about our discussions and activities at West.

Use the Twitter and Facebook links on the right to share our Everybody Reads adventure.

The 7th grade Blue team went to Monticello on Monday night to play the Magic. The first half was fast paced as both teams came out firing mid-range jumpers.  Although the Blue team came up short (38-19) they did show improvement running their offense and being aggressive on defense. Scoring for the Knights were Dylan B. with 4, Alex N., Kaleb A., Devon B. and Dylan E . with 2 apiece.

The 7th grade boys basketball Gold Team had an exciting comeback victory over Buffalo 28-26 on Tuesday night.  The Knights trailed most of the game before staging an exciting rally.  Justin M. played a solid game from the point cashing in 7 points.  Ben H. started the rally playing tenacious full court defense and nailing a couple of buckets.  Dylan J. had 9 points including 2 clutch free throws to nail down the win.  The game ended on the Knights defensive end with Buffalo attempting several last second shots until Jack I. gathered up a loose ball as the buzzer sounded.  Great game boys!
