Hello!  This is Mrs. Foster, the new Media Specialist, and I want to invite you and your student to be part of something new this year at Clegern.  I would like to introduce lunch-time book clubs to Clegern Elementary’s third through fifth grades. This is something I did with my children when they were in elementary school, and it was something we all enjoyed.

The  expectation would be for your child (and you, if you are a group leader) to read a specific book per quarter.  On a specified date for each book, your child should plan to bring a lunch and be prepared to discuss the book in a small group, led by a parent volunteer during their lunch period.  (Bringing lunch from home is not required, but will maximize discussion time.) Each parent volunteer would receive a list of possible book discussion questions from me, but should feel free to lead the discussion in a way that best suits their group.  

For more information, download your child’s specific grade-level form below.

Please note, the deadline for ordering books through the media center has passed.  You may still sign up to participate by filling out the form and returning it to the media center, but you will need to obtain the books on your own.
