    Following back-to-back successful campaigns, LRSD continues its One District One Book reading effort. Through One District One Book, all 13,000 elementary students simultaneously read the same book. Community partners pitch in to purchase the books. Families are encouraged to read the books together at home. While at school, students enjoy participating in chapter-themed projects, science experiments and other related activities. This year’s book is The One and Only Ivan –told through the title character, a gorilla who lives at a shopping mall. Sponsors include the Little Rock Zoo, Southwest Power Pool, Arvest Bank, Rotary Club 99 and Economics Arkansas. A special zoo day connected to the campaign was hosted in November for LRSD families. Additional dates will be shared on the District website and social media about upcoming One District One Book events.

    • New this year, as students read The One and Only Ivan, they will participate in challenges that include receiving electronic clues to solve problems in a virtual escape room, and have the opportunity to win prizes. Supt. Mike Poore has issued the first challenge:
      • Challenge 1
        Students are requested to read the first chapter with their parent/guardian, then post a photo of themselves reading with their parent/guardian on the school's social media sites, using hashtags #LRSD1District1Book and #LRSDPowerofUS
