WHO?  1st-4th graders

WHAT?   Brain Fuel, sponsored by the PTA, is a lunch time book club that allows students to meet weekly with their peers during which time they participate in active discussions and crafts relating to a book the group is collectively reading.

  • Brain Fuel is open to grades 1 – 4 (5th graders can participate in the Battle of the Books program). 

  • Grade 1 will read one picture book each week.Grade 2 will read a combination of chapter books and picture books.Grade 3 & Grade 4 will read chapter books

  • WHEN? Brain Fuel is a 6-week program that starts the week of February 4th and ends the week of March 11th.  Parents/students will be notified of their meeting day/classroom after registration closes.  Children are to bring a bag lunch or purchase a hot lunch from the cafeteria and then proceed to their assigned classroom with their lunch tray.  Book club meets during both lunch and recess; please consult with your child to ensure they understand that recess time will be book club time on their designated meeting day.

  • HOW MUCH?  $10.00 per child – this fee covers craft expenses incurred by our volunteers and an end of the program celebration.  Financial assistance is available, if needed.

  • HOW TO REGISTER?  Registration is now closed.


  • As always, this program is run entirely by volunteers and will not happen without parents' help and support.   At the point, we are still looking for at least two volunteers for every grade.  Please consider volunteering for this great program.  It requires only one hour of your time, once a week, for six weeks.   Children of parent volunteers are guaranteed a spot in Brain Fuel.
