Our "Holiday" reading clubs are our biggest each year, and with 7 schools we'll need over 500 volunteers this year! The reading clubs will feature a visit from Santa, a holiday raffle for the kids, and fun holiday books and crafts.

DECEMBER BOOKS

Our Curriculum Committee has been hard at work coming up with discussion topics and craft ideas for all of the holiday-themed books. We have a great lineup of books for the December reading clubs.

-First graders will help Mister Frog stay awake for this year's Christmas celebration in Four Friends at Christmas by Tomie dePaola.
-Second graders will follow the Grinch into Whoville as he tries to ruin Christmas in How the Grinch Stole Christmasby Dr. Suess.
-Fifth graders will hear the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carolby Charles Dickens.
