St. Joseph School Middle School Book Club
The Middle School Book Club is an elective class available to any student in grades 6-8. The class lasts for a semester and students may change electives each semester.
We select a book to read and take 4-5 weeks to complete the book. During our class meetings, we will discuss the books and participate in other book related activities. And as every good book club does, we usually enjoy some homemade goodies while we chat.
