JUNIOR GREAT BOOKS- Virtual Student Book Club- Junior Great Books (JGB) is a 9 week program (1/18/21 to 3/15/21) for 2nd to 5th graders which explores these topics in short stories relevant to each grade level during weekly, lunch-time, small group gatherings. This year JGB will be virtual! The JGB Participation Fee with a new book is $25. If you already have your own JGB grade-level book or would like to borrow a used book, there is a $5 participation fee. Used books are limited and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be one class per grade, and class sizes are limited to 8 to 10 students. So, please sign up quickly to ensure your student's spot. Please, also consider volunteering to lead a small group with your child/children. It is great fun and a minimal time commitment! Please, kindly fill out a separate form for each child.
Applications are open until this FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18th, 2020: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdA3zgbTv7TsYkY8vvhun_bb4MPHsHfTGKVAzbe7JIbwuGPwg/viewform?usp=sf_link

FRY’S GOT TALENT - Does your child have a special talent? Fry’s Got Talent is going digital this year, and we would love to have your child share their talent with us! Please see the attached form for more information, and how to submit your child’s performance for the show.
CONNECTIONS DRIVE - We are collecting through 12/18!
Many foster children will be celebrating the upcoming holidays with their biological families in the Department of Children & Family Services’ offices thanks to the coronavirus. Help us create a space that will provide an opportunity for these families to make lasting connections. We would love for Fry Families to share how they “Connect” as a family. Maybe your family likes to make crafts, reads a book series as a family, plays games using silly rules, etc. Whatever your family does we want you to share it.
There are three ways to help:
Purchase an item or put together a package, include a personal note on how your family connects, and drop off at: 3147 Kewanee or 3415 Tall Grass Drive
