Book Fair Update ! Books for our library!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Book Fair.  It was a huge success!  We appreciate all of the excitement around the dress up days, the door decorating contest, the Grandparents/Loved Ones day and the Ice Cream Social.  

Thanks to all of you we made over $6,000 in Scholastic Dollars that will be spent in our library and in our classrooms.  In addition, your generous donations to the library raised almost $950, which resulted in 110 new books that will be on the shelves in the next few weeks!

Huge thanks to Kara Gallagher, Jen Moore and Carolyn McCombs Co-Chairing the Book Fair.  A special thank you to a few people who were able to help out for several shifts during the week:  Jamie Simpson, Tami Dunlap, and Susie Cho.  And thank you to Lisa Mooney of ReMax Masters for sponsoring our Ice Cream Social.  

And thank you to all of the volunteers:  Stacy Jackson, Kendall Jordan, Paula Kroell, Julie Stephens, Abby Langum, Kayleigh Worrell, Kristy McCusker, Laura Serff, Lauri Baird, Jenn Stearns, Hazel Leslie, Aymee Comas-Diaz, Julie Somers, Jake Stransky, Matt, Rachelle Knisely, Edward Tucker, Jon and Janell Mroch, Marjie Vik, Mark and Shannon Demyanovich.
