Clubs

Below is a planned schedule of clubs for the 2019-2020 school year. 

These are subject to change.

Reading Rocks Cafe Book Club (Loring)- Meets twice a month at lunch in the Cougar Den.

The Reading Rocks Café Book Club started in October 2000 to show students that reading can be fun!  We meet every other Wednesday in the library.  It’s the only time the students are allowed to eat in the library, a VERY special privilege to have.  There are eligibility requirements that must be met.

Young adult literature has evolved over the last few years to bring in more current topics to attract more readers.  There has also been a resurgence of “older” books, like LORD OF THE RINGS. 

We rely on our students and their families, along with our staff, to support our Book Club with their purchases through our book fairs.  There are 2 book fairs held each year.  The profit from these fairs is kept on account at Scholastic Books.  We then use our profit to buy books and sell them, at $1.00 each—no matter what the cost of the book—to our Club members.  The students are given 2 weeks to finish the book.  At our next meeting, we have lively discussions about the books.

Fit Club (Ross & Loring)- Meets Tues. and Thurs. mornings from 6:30am-7:15am.
