Dear Third Grade Parents,

Thanks to a grant by the Rutherford Education Foundation, Lincoln School will be
hosting Lunch Bunch Book Club for students in grade three. Here’s how it will work.
Students will receive a book one month prior to the meeting. Meetings will be listed on
the calendar. On the day of the meeting, we will enjoy some lunch together. I don’t
know about you, but food, books and friends are my favorite things!!!

Students in the Book Club will have an opportunity to discuss books with their friends,
teachers and me. The only requirement is that the students read the book prior to
attending the book club! The REF has generously purchased 20 copies of each book that
can be borrowed from the school library. You may also try the town library or some
bookshops. Students are encouraged to bring the book to the discussion group and are
required to return it if they borrowed it from the school library.

A list of the books and a sign-up sheet is attached. We will also post the schedule on the
school’s website.

I would like to thank the staff members assisting with the lunch book clubs for their input
and time and the REF for purchasing the books. Their efforts will benefit your children!

Please return the form below by September 18th to assist us in planning.

Happy Reading!
