Book Fair

Dear Parents and Families,

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school from Monday Dec. 4th – 7th! What better way to promote reading to our students than by supporting this important literary event.

We invite your entire family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children’s books. Did you know that for every $10 you spend at the Fair up to $6 comes directly back to our school? Your support of this vital literary event is key in helping us obtain new books and resources for our library and classrooms.

Don’t forget to mark the Book Fair dates on your calendar! We look forward to seeing you during our Scholastic Book Fair and thank you, in advance, for supporting this great literary fundraiser. Mostly, thank you for believing in books and the importance reading has on your child’s future.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Simanic

Book Fair Chairperson

Times: before school (8:30-9:00am) at lunch (12:00-12:45pm) or after school (3:30– 4:30pm)

Festival du Livre

Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you all for supporting our French book fair, Festival du Livre. It was such a huge success, we raised over $3,400. Your contributions will allow us to add over $1,500 in books to the Howard Library.

A big thank you to all parent and student helpers! Without such a great team, this fair would not have been such a success.

Thank you,
Mrs. Simanic
