A Successful First Year of Book Club

All year long, students in 6th and 7th grades have been meeting about once a month to discuss the 7 Harry Potter books.
Book Club began in September and has meet faithfully each month to talk about events, characters, and developments in the Harry Potter books, as well as to recommend titles to others in the group. You can see all of our Book Club happenings by clicking on the Book Club tab at the top of the page or by clicking HERE.

For our last meeting, the Subway Restaurant in Adel graciously donated two, 3-foot party subs. We enjoyed talking about the final book in the series, discussing such topics as horcruxes, Rooms of Requirement, and the extension charm. A common response to "What is in your Room of Requirement?" was "bank vault," while one student said he wised he could have read his mother's mind (like Harry could see into Voldemort's mind) when he was grounded and had friends at his house so he could see when she was coming home. :)

Overall, a fun first year of Book Club! Hope to see you back at Book Club in the fall when we'll start a whole new round of reading!
