The annual Scholastic Book Fair ended on a very positive, record-breaking note! Our strong sales will result in a profit of almost $2,000 which will be used exclusively to add to our school library collection. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our families, who continue to encourage a love of reading. Thank you to those families who purchased books from the teacher wish lists, enhancing their classroom libraries as well.
We’d also like to thank our volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to help make the book fair such a success. From setting up, working the cash register, helping students find books, breaking down the book fair and more, each person made a difference: Jodi Weil, Mike Bullock, Sarah House, Rachel Brodsky, Rachel Morgenthal, Kellie Kelleher, Sylvia Jaffa, Marissa Kempner, Yakov Feig, Jay Kaplan, Chris Hernandez, Debra Setzer, LeeAnn Cinnamon, Rachel Sullivan, Dan Sullivan, Sandy Shapiro, Howard Wolpoff, Tmima Neihaus, Elena Shumilova, and Simon Schuster. A special thank you to our anonymous middle school students who dressed up as Clifford the Big Red Dog!
The biggest shout-out, however, goes to Melanie Setzer and Kim Millrood, who went above and beyond planning, organizing and running the book fair. The fair's success is a direct result of their dedication and effort.
The winner for the “Guess the Gelt” contest was Itamar O. in 3rd grade. Enjoy using your gelt to play dreidel this Hanukkah!
We are so grateful to all who visited and shopped the book fair and wish you happy reading!
