    One Book, One District Books for Elementary and Secondary Schools


    Elementary students of the Ponca City Public School District can’t get enough of reading together. The district has participated in twelve One Book, One District selections in recent years and plan to begin book number thirteen on October 28. Teri Vogele, Associate Director of Curriculum, said, “Participating in OBOD has provided our schools and community with opportunities to reap the benefits of reading together. Through OBOD, conversations about characters, themes, vocabulary, and comprehension improve. Parental involvement is a huge part of the success of this initiative as well, and the District hopes that parents continue to support this very important reading initiative.” This year the district is expanding the OBOD initiative to include the students, parents, teachers, and staff members of East and West Middle Schools.
