As Flying Carpet Clubs start wrapping up, we’d like to thank all parents and students who participated, and all teachers who allowed the use of their classrooms.
So that others may enjoy the program next year, we ask that all borrowed books be returned to the specially marked box in the office. Thank you!

Flying Carpet Club Junior Great Books Official Registration Form

Flying Carpet Clubs are Central PTO’s lunch/recess Junior Great Books groups for children in grades 1-5. We meet once a week for 9-10 weeks, starting the week of January 16. Because we meet during lunch/recess, Club Members do not participate in recess on meeting days. Club Members must read the story of the week (or have it read to them) twice prior to their Club meeting. On meeting days, they must come prepared with their book, sack lunch* and drink. If you are unsure whether your child would enjoy this as an alternative to the regular lunch/recess program, please contact his or her teacher to discuss. Clubs are small to promote shared inquiry and the quality exchange of ideas. (See attached for the number of slots per grade.) As slots are allotted on a first come first served basis, we ask that completed registrations be returned to the PTO Mailbox as soon as possible, but no later than FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16. Used books can be borrowed from the PTO at no cost. New books may be ordered at a cost of $19.38 each with checks payable to “Central School PTO.” We will notify you by email if we are unable to accommodate your registration. Club Members will receive their books the week prior to their first meeting. Click the link below for the registration form:

Looking to encourage a life-long love of reading with your kids?

Toting carpets into Central School classrooms, Flying Carpet Club leaders take children in grades 1-5 on lunchtime literary adventures.  Music, movement and art help spark meaningful discussions about the world-class stories collected in Junior Great Books™ anthologies . . . and build lasting memories!

 

Though it seems early, we need your volunteer commitment today.  As Clubs are limited to 6-8 children, the number of spots we can offer during December registration depends on it!

Flying Carpet Clubs run from January through mid-March on your choice of Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  (We can pair you with a co-leader for maximum scheduling flexibility.)  All training and materials will be provided in advance.  Please see the Sign Up Genius for more details or contact Aberdeen Ozga ataberdeen1@comcast.net or 312-209-6220.
