Reading Club

Welcome everyone to the Madera Reading Club of the school year 2019/2020!

The Reading Club is designed to encourage a love for reading.? All students are welcome to participate. Participation is completely voluntary.

You can find the introduction letter here

and the log here

If you want some suggestions find the February suggestions here

This year the Reading Club will run from September – February. For each submitted log you will receive a charm (similar to the Running Club).

When you reached 1000 minutes a magnet with you picture will be made and will be displayed in the Reading Club display case, just outside of the office until the end of the school year. Photo permission is assumed to be yes, unless I’m notified. At the end of the school year you get to take the magnet home as well.

Any questions, comments or if you want to get involved please get in touch:

Have a great year of reading!
