Alexander Hamilton Middle School is proud to announce our third year One School, One Book event. The goal of this event is to promote literacy and build a common experience for both our students and our community. This year, we will read Orbiting Jupiter, by Gary D. Schmidt.
Each day, students will engage in a read-aloud with their homeroom teachers. Every student will receive his or her own copy of the book to keep at the end of our event. Additionally, our teachers will integrate many of the components of the story into our school day.Please join us!
