Scholastic Book Fair

Deby Baker and Jen Glovsky outdid themselves this year to make the Scholastic Book Fair a roaring success.  Here is their news of the fair:

Thanks to all the students and families that came to the Scholastic Book Fair last week.  We are pleased to announce that we sold a record $5,600+ of books.  We received 55% of the revenue in Scholastic Dollars that allowed us to supply all the books for the library and the classrooms that were not purchased by parents.  We still have plenty of Scholastic Dollars available for other school needs throughout the year!

Thank you to all who supported the fifth grade bake sale.  They made a whopping $403!!  Fifth grade is well on the way to funding a great week in the spring.

Lastly, special thanks to Jen Bent and Serenity for making our evening book fair event a success. Everybody LOVES Serenity.  Parents and children alike were mesmerized by her sweet nature.  She was definitely the hit of the evening!! 

The next Scholastic Book Fair will be back in the spring.  That is our BOGO event.  (Buy one get one free!)  We hope to see you then!
