All for Books - Nov. 28 - Dec 2, 2016
Post date: Oct 29, 2016 12:43:27 PM
Get ready to celebrate the love of reading with our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair! We will have many fun reading activities and events planned for your child throughout this event. We hope you can join us by visiting the Book Fair with your student between December 5th thru December 9th. Just in time for the holidays!!
One of our Book Fair goals is to ensure as many children as possible have access to books. One of the ways we can do that is through the All for Books program. With your help, donations will purchase more books for our teachers reading incentive programs and classroom libraries.
Last year together we raised an astounding $2,150.82 to give right back to our teachers in books: entire classroom sets, books for classroom libraries, and reading incentive books were purchased across the grade levels!!! Your support was tremendous!! This year we are making a coin drive goal of $2,500…we know we can do it with your help!! Join us in our coin drive:
All For Books Coin-A-Day Challenge
Each day represents a different type of coin for students to collect an bring in to school. The classroom that collects the highest overall total will receive a prize!!
- Penny Monday, Nov. 28
- Nickel Tuesday, Nov. 29
- Dime Wednesday, Nov. 30
- Quarter Thursday, Dec. 1
- Any Coin Friday Thursday, Dec. 2
If you have loose coins hiding under couch cushions, floor mats, in pants pockets, or the bottom of your bag, put them to good use by giving students more access to books they’ll want to read!
Here’s the even cooler part!!
Not only does your donation help our school, but Scholastic Book Fairs® will match monetary donations with a donation of up to one million dollars in books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distributes books to children in need through organizations such as Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. and Kids In Need Foundation.So cool!!!
