5th Grade students have the opportunity to participate in an after-school reading club. It is called the Newbery Club, because the 5th graders read books that have a chance of winning the Newbery Medal. Each year, the Newbery Medal is given to the book that is voted the most distinguished American literature for children. During the club meetings, 5th graders have a snack and discuss their books. Eventually, they will vote for the book they think should win the award. Thank you to the Riverside PTO for paying for the books and to Mrs. Strawser and Mrs Notwell for leading this club.
