Reading Club

Welcome everyone to the Madera Reading Club of the school year 2018/2019!

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

We changed it up a little bit this year. Instead of counting pages we count minutes (by 20 minutes). Each month (September – April) will feature a different button designed by students. All students who complete a log and return it will receive this button of the month. There will be no online reading log this year.

After a student read 600 minutes total we will still make a magnet with the student’s picture and put it in the hallway display case. At the end of the school year these magnets will go home

We will also hang up the book recommendations that come in so that students and parents can see what Madera is reading.

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

Have a great year of reading!
