One School, One BookThe Pointe Day Treatment Center embarked on a special project: an all school book club called One School, One Book. Every family received a copy of the same book – Jacqueline Davies’ “The Lemonade War” – and we asked families to read it at home each night as a family activity. Each morning, a drawing was held for the students that answered the trivia question correctly, and it was quite competitive! Each class submitted a secret lemonade recipe, and we held an election to choose the best two to feature at our Lemonade Stand.
Our kids learned about local charities and decided to donate our “lemonade money” to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The students set up the Mobile Lemonade Stand at Pinnacle Pointe and three Pointe Outpatient Clinics in Central Arkansas. The staff and students loved it, and we earned $500! The kids used their reading, vocabulary, comprehension, math, economics, marketing, and social skills to make this project a huge success!
