This is the image for the news article titled Community Book Study AnnouncedSwallow School has received a grant to support multi-generational book clubs.  This format invites parents, community members, students, and school staff to read a book germane to all ages and come together for discussion.

The first book,  New York Times Bestseller, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, by Angela Duckworth, will focus on learning how passion and perseverance can positively influence all of us . “Grit” is a word used frequently in sports, education, business, etc. that is a key factor in the development and growth of perseverance. Research indicates that individuals who have grit tend to be more successful and resilient than those who do not.

The book club will kick-off on January 31 at 6:30 pm at Swallow and feature a short introductory gathering  and snacks will be provided. The book club will conclude with a full book discussion beginning at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, March 12.

Sign-up using THIS LINK. The first 20 participants will receive a free copy of the book, which will be distributed at the introductory meeting on January 31. Click HERE for further information.

Any member of the Swallow community is invited to participate and there will be another book club opportunity in Spring 2019.  If you have questions, please contact Annie DiPietro at dipietroa@swallowschool.org or 262-367-2000.
