About One Book One School – The Jennifer Kelly Project

Jennifer Kelly, a mother of past and present Collicot students Liam (10th), Ava (9th) and Ronan (3rd) passed away unexpectedly in the summer of 2009.  She was a huge presence in the Milton School Community, who gave endlessly to The Collicot School.  Jenn was particularly passionate about the One Book One School program.  In this program, each family receives their own copy of the same book to read.  The books chosen at our school contain topics that celebrate diversity, embrace our differences and cultivate understanding, acceptance, and inclusion. The school community then comes to participate in fun, shared events that celebrate our book’s theme.

The year that Jenn passed, she tried to start this program at our school as part of a diversity committee initiative.  Unfortunately, funding was not available at the time. Due to overwhelming support from the school community, this project was launched in her memory.  We are so proud to celebrate our 7th year in honor of Jenn and the love she gave to our school
