The Book Fair drew in a record number of families, scheduled the same week as the Winter Music Program and the Craft Fair. Purchases came close to $3,000, earning over $1000 in Scholastic book credit. We used the money to buy all the books on the teachers' wish lists (they were thrilled), and the rest remains in our Scholastic account, to be spent on student requested books.
A smaller book fair will be scheduled in the spring, this time with a local bookseller. Fewer trinkets and more flexibility, and although we'll make a smaller percentage of the profits, the fair will include a greater variety of books. Stay tuned!
