Book Club 

The Eagle High Book Club is currently working on designing a t-shirt for the members. Their last meeting was on Nov. 7 during lunch in the library.  It was a great opportunity for the members of the club to promote the love of literature in a positive and nurturing environment. Book Club allows students to build a richer understanding of the book they are reading and discuss their opinions, likes and dislikes, of a book in a small student environment that is not graded or heavily structured. The club is currently reading “The Call of the Wild” by Jack London. Any student is welcome to join. They will just need a signed permission slip. Members do not have to read every book. If they have many of outside activities, they might want to read only one or two of the four or five books the club reads during the school year. All book selections are chosen by the members of the book club and provided to students through library loans.
