One Book, One School Required Summer Reading

Dear Parents and Guardians of Incoming LMS Students,

For the past three years, Lumberton Middle School students and staff have been participating in a program called One Book, One School (OBOS). This program is designed to create a shared reading experience within a single school community. A book is chosen, usually with a positive character lesson, and every student reads that book over the course of the summer. Once school begins, activities at school coordinate, promote and enrich the shared reading experience.

This year’s required OBOS reading is titled Trash by Andy Mulligan. Please purchase a copy and ensure that your child reads it before the start of school; better yet, read it with your child!

You can order it through Amazon in paperback or for Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Trash-Andy-Mulligan-ebook/dp/B003F3PMBQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1435759786&sr=1-1&keywords=trash+by+andy+mulligan&pebp=1435759803072&perid=094V013Z8V6NZG9NPDSS

For Nook owners, (also in paperback) it can also be ordered through Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/trash-andy-mulligan/1100169121?ean=9780385752169

A copy of the school’s OBOS flyer is also ATTACHED.

Have an enjoyable summer!
