Every Reader is a Star!!

Scholastic Book Fair brings fun & great reads

October 03, 2012

Thank you to all the students, families, and teachers, and other visitors to this year's Scholastic Book Fair. This year's fair sales grossed just over $2500.  The library was able to take a number of hardback books from the fair as part of the book fair profit /rewards system, and these will be added to the library collection for the students to check out and enjoy.

This year's book fair theme was "All-Star Book Fair:  Every Reader is a Star!"  We were really happy to see the students so excited about choosing books of their own at the fair. Reading is such an essential and life-long skill, and we hope they the books from the book fair will be read over and over.

The Star Burst jar for the guessing game had 237 candies inside.  Winners of the contest could select an item up to $5 from the fair.  Winners were Angel L. (240) - PreK-K grades; Andrea L. (250) - Grades 1-3; Dillon B. (237), Dylan H.(237), and Olivia S. (237) - Grades 4-6; Zach H. (242) & Vanessa R. (232) - grades 7-9; Heath G. (234) - Grades 10-12; Mrs. Sarah Rusk - adults & teachers category.  Congratulations to the winners!

A big thank you goes out the adults who volunteered at the book fair.  Their help is greatly appreciated, since this fair cannot be done without them.  This year's volunteers were:  Sherri Lundahl, Donna Nelson, Darci Slama, Angie Borg, Arianne Conley, Amanda Fischer, Sara Tello, Tracey Anderson, Patti Bejot, and Karen Borg.  Thank you!!

We'd also like to thank the students who wore the Clifford costume at the fair, who helped with the boxes of books and with the posters, and those who volunteered to count.  We appreciate your teamwork and your willingness to lend a hand (or arm).  Thanks to:  Nick G., Alex C., Anthony V.,Dalton F, Josh L., Isaias R., Cleo S., Megan B., Raul S., Marlon S. Kimberly S., Alexis C., Megan B., & Brooklyn B., and to anyone we forgot to mention.

The Wakefield Online Book Fair closes on Oct. 6. 

Pre-orders for the book Wimpy Kid # 7 will be shipped to the school on November 13.

Truly, everyone who reads is a Star!!  Students who read (or are read to) 20-30 minutes or more each day do the best in school!  Read for fun, read to know, read to lead!!!

Every Reader is a Star!!
