We held our first of three Scholastic Book Fairs last week. The students loved checking out (and buying!) the new books at the fair. Our book fair could not happen without all our volunteers. Many parents helped out setting up, tearing down, and working during the day. We also had eleven fifth graders help by running register, making wish lists for younger students, and restocking the fair. Most helped during the school day, but two students even came on Saturday to help out! They had a lot of fun helping out and did an awesome job. Some students loved running register while others preferred to help out working with kindergarten and first grade or with the lollipop pull. With a twenty-five cent donation to All for Books, students pull one lollipop. Some lollipops had a colored stick which won them a coupon to use at the book fair. Here are some pictures from our book fair.

Our Get Caught Reading campaign is back! OR I should our Got Caught Reading campaign? For the last three weeks students have been ticketed for any voluntary reading done in school. The teachers loved ticketing students and the students are loving the prize- a free book to our upcoming book fair next week. Each week for the previous three weeks, a drawing was held to select three tickets from each grade. Winners were announced on the morning announcements and students received a coupon to our book fair.
Our book fair starts on Monday, November 14 and runs through Saturday, November 19. This is our first Saturday book fair event to coincide with the PTA Science Fair. Our book fairs are hosted by Scholastic and this year’s theme is a fun one: Bookaneer Book Fair. That’s right, it is a pirate theme. Ahoy, matey! Our book fair is also online through November 22 for those that want to do some “secret” holiday shopping. Happy shopping and happy reading!
