Readers are Leaders
Here in the Thompson School District, our community spent hours in developing The Portrait of a TSD Graduate. We believe it is imperative that our students are well prepared to contribute in their community and compete in a global economy. The competencies in our Portrait of a TSD Graduate are embedded in the daily interactions between students and staff.
The five competencies in the Portrait of a TSD Graduate are: Communicator, Critical Thinker, Citizen, Collaborator, and Self Advocate. These important competencies show up in many books and the characters and themes in those books help us understand what these competencies really mean.
In Readers are Leaders, we hear from all kinds of people in the Thompson School District about one of their favorite books, how the themes in the book connect to TSD’s Portrait of a Graduate, and hear them read aloud their favorite part.
