This year at Webb we have started a school wide book club. Every other month all classrooms get a new picture book to read and discuss with their class. Each book has its own universal theme/message that ties into our "Webb Way To Be" school pledge. At the end of the month classes meet across grade levels to talk about the book. Please click the title for more.
