The Reading Club will be meeting 6 times this summer (schedule below), with meeting times in both the morning and evening, at both Beacon Hill and Columbia City libraries. Our primary goal is to provide a space for friends — old and new — to gather and read together!! Our secondary goal is to provide a place for parents to read with kids who may be struggling and will benefit from extra summer reading help. The Reading Club is not officially sponsored by Orca K-8, but the moms who started the club are moms of incoming Orca 2nd graders. Many of us have spent time in the classroom reading with our kids’ classmates, and we want to continue supporting them throughout the summer. We also want to keep up the culture of reading that our fabulous Orca educators have instilled in our kids!
What will we do?
Kids will be reading together in groups or by themselves, and parents will be there to help emerging readers. We will keep track of the books we read on the SPL Summer Reading program chart, and after 10 books the library will give us a prize! Prizes from SPL will include a book and entries into a raffle for a lunch with the mayor! **All kids are welcome, from all schools and all grades ** Many of us will have siblings in other grades, younger and older, so there will be new friends for all ages! Books will be provided! Please join us, and spread the word!
