We're having lots of fun at our Scholastic Book Fair this week - where reading is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! We've had lots of exciting things going on at the book fair...contest winners, Open House, visits from Grandparents, pictures with Astronaut Seymour and the UFO and our "What Planet are YOU From?" costume contest. The fun continues as the week goes on...we still have two GREAT days to shop the book fair, invite grandparents, have your picture made and enter contests. Be on the look out for Space trivia tomorrow and Friday as well as winners announced from our coloring contest. And don't forget...if we reach our goal of selling 500 books, OIS will celebrate with a school-wide movie and popcorn day featuring the movie "Mars Needs Moms"!
Keep bringing that ONE FOR BOOKS money! All donations are accepted. Tomorrow is quarter day and Friday is "Anything Goes" day...so bring it all!! Here are the top FOUR reasons you should participate in One For Books:
1. Your class gets to keep all the money to purchase books from the book fair for YOUR classroom!
2. The library makes a profit from the money you bring in to spend towards new books in the library for YOU to read!
3. Scholastic matches EVERY PENNY you donate and sends fabulous books to children in need.
4. You get to hang a UFO in the OIS lobby for all the world to see that YOU are making a difference!
5. The class collecting the most money will be awarded a field trip to visit with author Mike Thaler who wrote the oh-so-popular "Black Lagoon" series!!
Now THAT is something to get excited about...keep reading, keep donating and keep shopping the book fair...where reading is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
