Through the Saint Rita One Read program we hope to facilitate conversation and discussion of important topics among our diverse community members. During the 2016-2017 school year, we will read the books A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park and The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (Young Readers Edition) by William Kamkwamba. Classroom and community activities will spark learning about scarce resources around the world, especially water. Students will be encouraged to become responsible consumers of resources. The Walk for Water will challenge the students to raise money and awareness in the community and test themselves physically as they experience just a fraction of what young people around the world must endure on a daily basis.
