Parkside's book clubs meet after school once a semester. There is a second grade book club, a third grade book club and a combined fourth and fifth grade book club. We distribute the books to the students at no charge. Many of these books were provided by the IDEA grant. Book club meets after school. We talk about what happened in the book. Students participate in a craft or activity that goes with the book and we have snack. Books are returned to be reused by future Parkside students.
