Principal's Book Club


Parents are invited to a monthly gathering in the ESMS Library with our book-loving principals.  The Principally For Parents Book Club will read and discuss great books personally selected by Mr. Getz, including notable fiction and non-fiction for adults as well as award-winning books currently being read by our middle school children.  Please consult the website calendar for the specific date and book selection each month.

In October Mr. Getz chose Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, a powerful look at confidence and achievement by renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck.  Our next Book Club meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 22, at 7:15pm.  We will discuss Ozge Samanci's acclaimed Dare to Disappoint:  Growing Up in Turkey, a biographical graphic novel that has helped millions of teenaged readers understand the challenges of growing up female in a political and religiously polarized society. 

If you plan to attend a Book Club gathering, please email our Parent Coordinator Caren Austen (
