This year our Scholastic Book Fair was a success at all campuses, running over a three day period! Not only did the purchasing of books from students and families help us earn ample funds that will go back into our schools and programmes, but together we earned over 100 new books for the campus libraries. During the Book Fair, students wrote up a wish list of books, took it home to review with parents, and then returned to purchase books the next day. With every purchase, a ballot was given for a chance to win a grand prize of $25 of free books for the student plus $25 of free books for his or her classroom. Everyone was excited to participate in this excitement!
We also garnered interest for the Book Fair by placing random tickets for free prizes in the Kindergarten classroom cubbies and student lockers throughout the school. The random winners were able to select a book as a prize! Students were also granted a surprise visit by Clifford the Big Red Dog during the last day of the Book Fair. His visit was especially exciting for the little ones, as he encourages them to enjoy reading, and is a familiar face!
We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the private school community of which we are so proud!
