"In the Know" Weekly Newsletter - The International School

Record-setting book fair!

What an incredible turnout of readers! The fair earned over $8100 this year. This is $2000 more than last year! Thank you parents, students, volunteers and wonderful weather! The school will receive over 50% of the total sales as Scholastic dollars. The library uses these funds to purchase books for the library, classroom sets for teachers and to subscribe to the BookFlix database.

 

In addition to the earnings from the sale, young authors Seng  and Emma donated 100% of the proceeds of the sale of their books to the library. Thank you Seng, Emma and parents for your hard work and generosity!

The fair would not have been possible without the help of my assistants Tomoyo Wells and Carrie Johnston or dedicated library volunteers Liann Martin, Christine Kruse and May Graham... and the numerous parents and staff who helped me move those heavy book carts all week long!

Thank you all!
