Principal Deborah Lisack’s October Read Aloud featured Rachel Bright’s “The Lion Inside,” an inspiring story that brings out the lion inside all of us, no matter how small. But that’s only half of the story.
The central character is a small mouse who decides that learning to roar like a lion will rid him of his insecurities. He musters the courage to approach the lion for a roaring lesson, but, in a hilarious turn of events, the lion is afraid of mice. Roles are reversed with the mouse comforting the lion and a new friendship is born. As it turns out, there’s a lion, and a mouse, inside all of us.
The Principal Read Aloud events take place monthly, with a fresh new book being read to students in all grades.
Known for her love of books and reading, Principal Lisack sprinkles book magic around the school year-round to encourage lifelong readers—even if that takes riding a bike around the school, with a special book basket. During the summer months, Mrs. Lisack visits the home of every incoming kindergarten student to bring them a book and read it to them.
