4th & 5th Graders: Books & Breakfast Applications Now Available

 

Attention 4th & 5th graders! Do you love reading? Do you enjoy a good book discussion with friends? Do you eat breakfast? If so, then Books & Breakfast may be for you! What is Books and Breakfast? It is a before school book club for 4th and 5th graders. Each session meets for 10 weeks – every Thursday at 7:00 am in the library. We have a light breakfast and then break up into smaller book clubs (each led by a faculty member) for book discussion.

Over the 10 weeks, students will read 3 novels and have a lot of fun!

The application will be available starting Monday, September 16th in the library. Students may come by the library to pick up an application. All applications must be submitted by Monday, September 23rd.

Here are some things you will need to know & consider before filling out an application:
• We take 45 students in each session (Fall & Spring). Students can only do one session. (We typically have a waiting list.)
• There is only one application process – it is in the fall.
• Students are asked to read between 50-75 pages a week.
• Students are making a commitment to attend each session for the whole 10 weeks. Attendance is important. If you miss 2 times you are not allowed to continue and your spot is given to someone on the waiting list.

• We ask that parents sign up to bring a food item at least once during the 10 week session. (There will be a sign up genius sent out for each session.)
• The application is to be mostly filled out by the student, but there is a parent portion.
• In the event that we have more than 90 students apply, we will choose students by drawing names.
• The dates for the fall are October 3 – December 12
• The dates for the spring are January 16 – March 26

If this sounds like something you would like to do, then please come pick up an application starting on Monday.
If you have any questions, please email Ms. Holley at tammy.holley@springbranchisd.com
Happy Reading!
