Last Chance to Sign Up for Junior Great Books – Deadline 2/13


The Junior Great Books enrichment program – for students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades – will meet once a week, starting the week of March 2 for six sessions.

During each parent-led class, students will discuss a story, learn new vocabulary words and either play a game or participate in an activity related to the book. Weekly readings (which are done at home) will be from grade appropriate books provided by the Junior Great Books program – typically folk or fairy tales from around the world. Stories are short and should take no more than 30 minutes to read.

Please register fast! Only 20 spots available per grade level! The cost is $25 per child, which includes books/materials. Complete registration and payment by this week, February 13, by clicking here.
