Beginning in October, it meets the first Friday of each month at 7:30 a.m. and adjourns at 8:20 a.m., in time for school. Meetings include a healthy light breakfast in the multi-purpose room before the students are divided into grade-level discussion groups.
Some benefits of being a Kolb BBC member include:
Grades K-2 will meet by grade, with easier selections in the fall ramping up to more complex selections in the spring. Grades 3-5 have a choice of joining the boys or girls group, or an adventure reading group.
The focus will be on books that children can make a connection to – books that are fun to read. The goal is to share ideas, laugh and have fun!
Register today! The cost is $95.00 per child and includes breakfast and 10 books that the child keeps. Checks are made out to KOLB-PFC. Sign up by September 15 so we can have a book ready for your student.
