Scholastic Book Fair takes a successful route in our school’s library

This week, St. Patrick held a Scholastic Book Fair in the school’s library.  The book fair is open throughout the whole school day, including during lunch.

Usually, St. Patrick holds their annual book fair at Barnes and Noble with a proceeds to our school, but this year we got to experience the book fair right in our own library where it is more convenient for our students are more successful for our school.  Our school librarian, Ms. Ladner, operates the cash register and checks out the student customers.  On Wednesday, the profits for the week were already over $700 for our school’s library.

The seventh grade’s English teachers, including Mrs. Buckley and Mrs. Williams, got to schedule a visit to the school’s book fair during the seventh graders’ English class times.  This gave some of the students the opportunity to explore the book fair if they weren’t able to make it before school, during lunch, or after school.

Mrs. Williams’ students spent the most on Monday, buying Fuzzy Pop Pens at the book fair.  Ms. Ladner says, “Some of the hottest titles were the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School, Zodiac, and Winter.  Also, the books Courage & Defiance: Stories of Spies, Saboteurs, and Survivors in WW II Denmark was wiped out by Mrs. Buckley’s students as their interest in that time period has been sparked by class reading of Night.

Ms. Ladner would like to thank our school’s staff and students for the support in the success of the book fair.  She would also like to give a special thanks to Mrs. April and Mrs. Riojas for volunteering this week and helping her out in the library for this special event!
