Sherwood Park Elementary Launches First One Book, One School Event

Get in line, SWPES Bears and Parents! We are going to “waddle” together through Mr. Popper’s Penguins, a delightful book about a house painter who dreams of visiting far away places. While he doesn’t get to go to Antarctica, he does get to experience his dreams in an unusual way.


Every SWPES Bear will get a copy of the book to participate in our One Book, One School Read Along. From February 1 to March 5, we will read the book together, enjoying some fun activities along the way and end our read along with a virtual celebration. 

Reading Schedule 

Each week, Bears will get to listen to guest readers as they share chapters of the book. Trivia questions will be posted each week and Bears can compete to win virtual prizes.


Join us as we kickoff the first SWPES One Book, One School read along on Friday, February 5! We will play games with questions from the first four chapters AND the top five scorers will win a pizza dinner, delivered to their homes!
