What a great week at the Book Fair!
- Over 250 books were purchased and it was great to hear students talk about their favorites!
- For a second book fair we featured some favorite ‘picks’ selected by “Student Critics” during a special Preview – thank you Student Critics for really helping some of your fellow classmates and their parents decide on some good summer reads! (A big thanks as well to those teachers for sending them – Borges, Capraro, Nonis, Sanford, and Thompson)
- We were able to have on hand for purchase 8 of the 22 RI Children’s Book Award Nominations for 2013!
- All teachers who made selections for their Classroom Wish Bins received all books either from parents as a Teacher Appreciation gift or on behalf of the HBSPA via our Scholastic Dollars earned as bonus for having this fair (44 books across 14 teachers/classrooms totaling approximately $330 Scholastic Dollars)
- Thank you HBS Parents/Guardians:
- ……to the 15 Parent Volunteers who either donated goods for the Teacher Preview or helped to cover the 25+ hours needed to run the Fair…..these functions cannot happen without parent helpers
- ……to everyone who took the time to visit the Fair and make some purchases! (including Beth and Mark at Explorations who helped remind parents about the special afterschool hours of the Fair as parents picked up their kids)!
Looking forward to our next Fall, Winter, and Spring BOGO book fairs!
