About the event

The community read is back! We have been doing a community read here at Marquette for the past four years. The community read is a way to get everyone in the community involved in literature. This year we decided to bring back the book we used our very first year and our most popular community read to date, Wishtree by Katherine Applegate! Click here to learn more about the book.

Every class in the school will be reading this book between February 13th and March 20th. Each week we will send home a family letter with information about what we are reading that week and possible discussion prompts you could use at home. We want to encourage you to get a copy of the book and read it along with your student. We have some extra copies in the Marquette LMC or you could look into getting your copy at the local public library or bookstore.

We will end the community read with a family event where we will build our own Marquette community wishtree. More specific details about the event will be coming out in next month’s Mustang minutes. The event will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd from 5:00-6:30pm. 

Contribute a dessert for a potluck - mark any known allergens (e.g., nuts).
