The CMS Book Club
What is cms book club?
The CMS Book Club is a Reading Club that is meant for those students who enjoy and love reading. The Book club might even explore writing on the side for those avid readers who wish to explore their creativity in writing. Typically, these students can't wait until the next book comes out in a series they may be reading or are interested in new reads. The CMS Book Club is not an AR Club, but most books read in the club as a group or separately do have AR points and quizzes.
Can anyone join?
All students in grades 6th - 8th can join the CMS Book Club at the beginning of the school year. We encourage students to listen to announcements and pay attention to flyers when initial membership begins. There is a deadline to join and usually it is in the last week of September. If a student transfers to CMS from another campus or district and hears about the club there is an exception for joining.
Where do you meet?
Book Club meetings are held in the library during lunch times A & B w/Mr. Brito every Wednesday, unless it is cancelled or postponed for another day. At times, if there is an activity, students may meet after school ensuring they have parental permission.
are there club rules?
Yes, there are Book Club rules for all students participating. The key to organization and order in any successful club must have rules to abide by; this makes the club fair for all students.
what activities are involved in the club?
First and foremost, reading is the essential component of the book club. Activities may range, but include reading a book as a group and having conversations and discussions about it; book talks with the group; playing a genre game, etc. Another fond activity the book club always participates in is setting up and helping with the Scholastic Book Fair in the Fall and Spring. Holiday activities also include fundraising, possibly writing a story and discussion and so forth.
