Stay Tuned for the One Book One School book choice for 2017-2018

2016-2017 OBOS Book Choice was: The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson

Our theme last year was “What You Do Matters” and we were thrilled to share that we chose The Boy on the Wooden Box: how the impossible became possible on Schindler’s List by Leon Leyson as our OBOS book for last year.  Leon Leyson was 10 years old when the Germans invaded Poland. As the youngest survivor on Schindler's list, his memoir is truly unforgettable.  

 

Our culminating activity was held on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017 when we finished reading the book together in our school wide, cross grade level book club groups.  Our student body presented food from our annual canned food drive to Larry Sly of the Contra Costa Food Bank.  We presented this food to the Food Bank in honor of Leon Leyson, his life and the incredible example set by Oscar Schindler in helping people.  Leon's story was a story of bravery, of hope and the impact of an unlikely hero.  We were honored to have Leon's wife, Lis Leyson, his daughter Stacey Leyson Wilfong, his daughter-in-law Camille Leyson, and his grandaughter Mia Leyson join us to share their memories of Leon.
