The decorations, created and displayed by our talented staff, transformed the Future Scholars Great Room into Sir Readalot's Castle--the royal kingdom of reading! Books for everyone from infants to adults were available as well as fun stationary, pens, and small toys.
Through the All For Books loose change collection program, we raised $169.05, which was spent on books that will be donated to the pediatric unit at Virtua Hospital. That amount will also be matched and donated by Scholastic! A special shout out to Kindergarten for winning the All For Books challenge--their room raised more than $77 (almost 45% of the total amount raised!) and Room 6 won a prize basket of books and other Scholastic goodies.
We are happy to be involved with the Scholastic Book Fair and the Scholastic Book Club. These events and monthly programs are great ways to get kids excited about reading and that is important to us here!
With the online fair running until Nov. 18TH, there is still time to help us reach our goal of a 10% increase in last year's sales. Right now we are at 76% of our goal! Consider doing some holiday shopping at our online fair--kids love books! Shipping to Future Scholars is free and there is an even larger variety of books available.
Photos of our Book Fair are posted now. Check out the amazing decorations and the great selection of books we offered. Thank you to everyone who supported our fair this year by purchasing books and donating to All For Books.
