1,000 Book ClubJoin the Club! The goal of the QES 1,000 Book Club is to get students excited about reading. The program involves student and family participation in a reading program that includes incentives and a goal of reading 1,000 books. Carts filled with bags of books available for sign out are kept in the K/1 lobby. Currently there are more than 130 bags of 10 books each that parents can sign out for their children to read. The program provides a fun way to allow parents and children to enjoy reading together as children work toward the goal of reading 1,000 books.
In order to participate, parents must register their child for the club in person at QES during normal school hours. By registering, a parent is able to borrow a bag containing 10 children’s books for a maximum of two weeks. When the books have been read, the bag is returned and parents are able to sign out another bag. This process continues until a child reaches 100 completed bags.
Children may be able to read some of the stories independently. However, in most cases someone will have to read the books to the children. The benefits from being read to are tremendous. 1,000 Book Club reading can also be counted toward the QES PARP and Book It Programs.
Parents can sign out bags every Monday thru Friday from 8:45 - 9:10 a.m. in the main lobby and after school in the gym from 3:15 - 3:30 p.m. Bags are signed out for a maximum of 2 weeks.
Who can participate in this program? Our target group includes Kindergarten students through first grade. However, the challenge of reading 1000 books can begin in Kindergarten or first grade and may continue through second or third grade in order to reach the goal.Program Incentives: Various incentives are earned along the way to 1000 books. All students that reach the goal of being a “1000 Book Kid” will receive a certificate and T-Shirt and will be recognized on the school announcements. Their names will also be added to the ‘1000 Book Club Wall of Fame.’
