CMS Readers Guild Club
What is Reader's Guild?
The Reader's Guild is a Reading and Writing Club for those students who enjoy reading and writing. These are the students who can't wait until the next new book comes out in a series they may be reading already or are writing in their printed or online journal/diary. THIS IS NOT AN AR CLUB!
Can anyone join?
All students in grades 6th - 8th can join the Reader's Guild 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 CMSSA from another campus or district and hears about the club there is an exception for joining.
Where do you meet?
Reader's Guild 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 club rules for all students participating in the Reader's Guild. The key to organization and order in any successful club must have rules to abide by; this makes the club fair for all individuals.
what activities are involved in the club?
First and foremost, reading and writing are the essential components of the club. Activities that include these two factors are reading a book and having conversations about it. It can be a club read as a whole or a book the student is already reading. Another activity is setting up and helping with the Scholastic Book Fair in the Fall and Spring. Holiday activities also include fundraising, writing a scary story, playing a game, etc.
Who do I contact for more details?
