The organization Read to Them just posted that Matthew Turner Elementary is being honored for School of the Year for its outstanding One School One Book Program. There were 500 schools in this program and we received first place honors.

We are so proud of our school & our PTA for sponsoring this program! Every family and staff member reading Fenway and Haddie and participating in the many exciting and creative activities earned this distinction for our school. Thank you to everyone and a huge shout out to our inspiring librarian, Lisa Saari, for her incredible passion and commitment to generate enthusiasm and joy for reading.
