LUNCHTIME READERS COMMITTEE: Lunchtime Readers coming soon in January! Lunchtime Readers is a program sponsored by the Ivy Hill PTA. Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade are invited to participate. Once a week, for six weeks, parent volunteers lead a book discussion group during the half-hour lunch recess. The groups are formed based on the students’ book choices. All reading is done at home.
