    Family Reading Book Club, 2018!

    On Thursday, March 29th, FMS families gathered for a schoolwide family book club. In 18 concurrent book discussions, families discussed one of 7 books they had preselected and read out loud at home. 140 family members attended the book club. 156 books were distributed to interested families in February. Thanks to the FMS PTO, students were able to keep or swap their book for another on the list. Students ate ice cream and participated in rich book discussion with their family members. The program is organized by the FMS Library.
