One Rock One Book logo January 28, 2021 - LRSD launched its annual reading effort under a new name with a new logo - One Rock One Book.  Through One Rock One Book, all 12,000 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 "Billy Sure Kid Entrepreneur."

    Additional dates will be shared on the District website and social media about upcoming One Rock One Book events.  Parents, students and staff are encouraged to post fun photos and videos sharing their activities related to the book.  Please post to social media using hashtags #LRSD1Rock1Book#BSure2Read#LRSDPowerofUS.
