Thank you to all for another successful Book Fair!

Our 2015 Scholastic "Book Fair Under the Sea" has concluded!  Thank you to all the families who came out on Family Night for your support, and to all the students and staff members who visited the fair and made purchases during the week.

Mrs. Eley thought it was one of the best fairs ever, as Scholastic sent some wonderful merchandise this year!!

There were 372 "fish eggs" (chocolate eggs) in the Family Night Guessing Contest Jar!
Congratulations to Adam C. of Mrs. Graeff's class for being the closest guesser and winning the chocolate for his class and $10 Book Fair gift certificate

A special thank you to volunteers N. Platt, J. Chinn, C. Reilly, Maha A., C. Durham, S. Dickson, D. Whalen, D. Kaur, N. Cohen, J. Halfpenny, O. Rapko, S. Hammond, Edward, J. Hammond, Mrs. Maccri, D. Storicks, R. Trivedi, K. Graham, J. Snider, K. Fleming, B. Christy, S. Smyth, N. Simone, and P. Quattrochi!

About 30-40% of the proceeds from the fair go to our library program and to fund our annual author visit.

This year we are pleased to welcome 13-year-old author Kyle Dixon on Thursday, April 16!  Many thanks to the PTO for covering his speaking fee!  Mrs. Eley will use the Book Fair profits to purchase a copy Kyle Dixon's book for each student to keep!  Kyle will be individually autographing each student's book on April 16 when he comes.
