The Fall Book Fair was a huge success - we sold over $12,000 worth of books, half of which goes to 217! Thank you to all of the students and families who came to shop. The money earned was used to purchase more books for classroom libraries in every class, subscribe each class to Scholastic News, as well as buy additional supplies for teachers.
In addition to money earned from book sales, students brought in over $500 in change for our "All For Books" drive and will celebrate their success by dancing the Whip Nae Nae with Mr. Luce! We wrapped up the week long book fair with students coming dressed as monsters and our first movie night of the year, raising over $1,000 more to fund enrichments and support teachers.
We'd especially like to thank our volunteers who kept our fair up and running all week: Dawn Jones, Erka Kosta, Hyeyeong Lee, Fiona Taylor, Jessica Fay Loparco, Iryna Mialkovska, Nae Takahashi, Carmen Lo, Nick Reiner, Remie Christ, Sausan Merali, Regina Moshy, Hae Joon, Jolanta Sabak-Bouaroudj, Ivana Hovrat, Andrea Siegal, Rachelle Sumersford, Nisha Ninan, and Atousa Zargaran.
