Tomball ISD students in Grades 2-4 will join students across Texas in kicking off the fifth annual statewide celebration of literacy called Texas Reads One Book on April 15. That day, students will gather at school to watch a video of Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett reading the first chapter of Friendship According to Humphrey. Then, for the next three weeks, the students will participate in lessons and activities related to the book at school while reading and discussing the book at home with their families. Texas Reads One Book is a project by the nonprofit family literacy organization Read to Them with support from the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and AASA | The School Superintendents Association.
