Junior Great Books – Sign Up Now


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

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) are from grade appropriate books provided by Junior Great Books – 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 February 13.

Schedule: March 2 – April 17
Grade 3: Thursdays, 3:05 to 3:40 pm (Room 202) – led by Susan Cobb & Ilysha Havens
Grade 4: Wednesdays, 7:55 to 8:30 am (MRC) – led by Amy Weichman & Megan Mikhail
