FIS Adventure Book Club


Start a new discovery with Adventure Book Club reading program sponsored by FIS PTA. We are using a list of books (see below) approved by the FIS administration that include a variety of reading levels from which your student can choose.

The reading contest will be held from Feb 1 st – April 16th. Once a student has read a book from the list, the student or parent/guardian should complete the google form.  Link to the google form can be found in the attached file.  Adventure Book Club Information

A form can be filled out as each book is read or at the end of the contest. Student's name, teacher, and grade, along with which book(s) was read are required.

Each book read will earn a themed button (1 button earned per series). For every 3 books read, a student will earn a special button.


Thanks to Premier Martial Arts, students will receive additional prizes:

• The TOP reader will receive 3 months of lessons and a uniform ($1100 value)
