FVES Reading Eagles Book Club

Name of Club: FVES Reading Eagles Book Club
Sponsor: Mrs. Amy Carter, Media Specialist

Purpose: The purpose of the FVES Reading Eagles Book Club is to create interest among students regarding the importance of reading, to model appropriate methods of reading, and to spread a reading culture throughout our school.  

Description of Planned Activities: Students interested in the 2024-2025 FVES Reading Eagles book club can apply with Mrs. Carter (the media specialist) in the Fall of 2024.  Once a permission slip is returned, signed by a parent giving permission for the student to participate, Mrs. Carter will give the student one copy of each of the the three books we will be reading during the school year.  The Reading Club will meet on Tuesdays after-school beginning in January 2025.  Any student in grades 3-5 may participate.  3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who participate in the Book Club and read the first three books by February, 2025 will have the opportunity to be chosen for the Reading Bowl competitive team.  This team will compete in a virtual "quiz-bowl" type competition against other Newton County elementary school teams in February of 2025 for a chance to win a spot to attend TomeCon, a literary conference, in March 2025.
