Book Fair
Book Fair is going well. The opening day was Thursday April 5th. It was also the Family Reading Night. It was an awesome turn out. It was a very busy night from open to close. The spring book fair is buy one get one free. The teachers each get $100 to spend which in turn is $200 since they get one book for each book they choose. The two reading teachers, two special ed teachers and the ELL teacher also get to pick out books to have in their classroom. We don’t make a profit off of this one but we do get 5% in Scholastic Dollars for having two book fairs in the year.
