    Each year students are encouraged to read the Sunshine State Books.  There are 15 Sunshine State books designated for each of the age groups:  K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.  

    Those students in grades 3-5 and 6-8 that have read the Sunshine State Books can join the Reading and Discussion (RAD) Book Club.  Two RAD Book Club teams are formed each year.  The RAD Book Club teams each consist of 12-15 members and will meet to discuss the Sunshine State Book and to prepare for the end of the year annual Reading SLAM, a friendly competion with other schools. This year, the competition will be virtual.

    Members are selected for the Reading SLAM Team based on how many of the Sunshine State Books they read and how well they have demonstrated effort completing the activity options.  Students in the RAD Book Clubs will meet at a specified date to prepare for the Reading SLAM meetings.   


    If you have any questions about the Reading and Discussion Book Club or the Sunshine State Books, please email Mrs. Monroe at
