Imagine making a difference in the world while doing something that you love. This is the basic principle of Scholastic Book Clubs’ Classrooms Care Program. This program is built upon students’ love of books and reading, and any class of any reading ability can make a difference. Within the program, the students in each class must read a total of at least 100 books. Each book is recorded on a tracking poster. As the books get read and the results get recorded on the poster, the students become increasingly more excited and inspired to participate. Students are not only eager to contribute to their own classroom goal, but they also know that their reading is making a difference to children in need.
Once 100 books are read, Scholastic Book Clubs is notified and a donation of 100 books is made to children and schools in need or reading materials. Our students benefit from both their increased interest in reading but also from the knowledge that their reading is making a difference to other children who are less fortunate. The program is indeed a fulfilling and rewarding experience for both the giver and the receiver. Together, thanks to Scholastic Book Clubs, we can make a difference, one book at a time!
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the private school community of which we are so proud!
