BOOK FAIR – Thank you to all students, parents, faculty and staff for your help making the book fair a success! We raised $5,567 in total net sales, which is great! The library gets a percentage of the net profit, which will help Mrs. Kan purchase more books. The All for Books campaign raised enough funds for Mrs. Kan to draw the names of 13 students, who were able to select a free book from the book fair; the funds raised increased our sales total, and Scholastic will match our funds to give away free books to children in need throughout the country. Thanks also to all the wonderful volunteers who helped set up, run, and pack up the book fair: Jennifer Hendrix, Ashley Sikes, Vincenza White, Rosa and Robert Amador, Amy Oliver, Lori Sagehorn, Jessica LaRussa, Maria Buxton, Gisela Cruz, Sharon Wolford, Keisha Townes, Susan Spindler, Natalie Fenwick, and students Anayah Smith and Angelica Fenwick. And thanks to the students in Library Book Club for the great decorations, the soda bottle fireflies and the camp lanterns: Andres Casarez, Kaleb Daigle, Angelica Fenwick, Nick Fenwick, Katie Hinds, Rhiannan Truman, and Sadie Walbridge. Now Mrs. Kan will be looking forward to our Fall Book Fair in September – “Saddle Up and Read!”
