Chat about books while eating your lunch!
We are pleased to be able to repeat last year’s successful program, borrowing sets of books from the Downers Grove Public Library and its networked libraries. Groups will meet once a week for approximately six weeks. See schedule below.
This is an optional program for students in grades 2 – 6.
Parents, we need you to lead! This student sign-up form below also has fields to capture your availability to run a group discussion.
Depending on the number of students interested in participating, some grades may have two groups. Smaller size groups will allow for more productive and enjoyable meetings for everyone. There is no guarantee that students will be placed with their friends. Your parent volunteer will regularly communicate important details of the program.
Please consult your child before signing them up and make sure this is something they really want to do because they enjoy reading and want to participate in a thoughtful group discussion!
Note: The DG library requires any lost books to be fined 60% of the book price. PTA will provide the specific cost to any family who loses a book and details on how to pay it.
Schedule is created based on student interest and availability of parent volunteers. Parents will be emailed weekly assignments and meeting dates.
- 3rd Grade – Tuesdays beginning November 7th on the stage
- 4th Grade – Mondays beginning January 29th in the LRC
- 5th/6th Grade Combined – Wednesdays beginning January 17th on the stage
- 2nd Grade – beginning in March on the stage
Note: 2nd grade will always meet in spring. It is important to allow our younger students time to build critical reading skills before diving into book club.
