THANKS for a great book fair!
An exciting Fall Book Fair was held October 2-5, 2017. We made $1450. Every book you bought supports our school. More importantly we put a lot of books into the hands of students.
We sold 1,147 Books which means approx 206,461 minutes of reading!
Plus we were able to add 36 books to our library collection from the fair. Additionally, we had wonderful gifts from both students & parents and the MPHM Women's Fellowship. Many books were purchased through the "Teacher Wish List" program to add new books to our classroom libraries. The Women's Fellowship donated money to allow more students to shop for books of their own.
A HUGE thank you is extended to our volunteers who helped make our book fair successful, especially our chair for the fair: Julie Barta!
