Thanks to all the students, parents, and teachers who came out to this year's book fair, we got hundreds of new books into the hands of our students! I loved the excitement I saw when I visited the multipurpose room, and it was wonderful to meet several of the families that stopped by after school. I also did my share of shopping, getting about 80 new books for the school library using Scholastic credit - some of the new titles are pictured on the left and should hit the shelves for the last few weeks of school. I want to give a big thank you to all the parents who coordinated the book fair - it's so important to our school and our library, so we truly appreciate all their hard work. Thanks also to the student volunteers who helped with set up and clean up. Their efforts made it possible for us to raise enough money that we can buy some exciting new books for next year to put in the library, support the school's art program, and more. Enjoy your books!
Clinton will be holding its annual Scholastic book fair next week from Monday, May 13, through Wednesday, May 15. Buying books will not only help students expand their brains through reading, it also will help the school! Part of the proceeds from the book fair go toward buying new books for the school library and to support classroom learning. All week, students in the library have been watching book trailers to get an advance look at some of the books that will be available. Based on reactions, I can tell what some of the popular books are going to be, and I'll try to snag some of them for the library. Happy reading!
