Book Fair News from Mrs. Swift: What a great week at the Book Fair!! Thank you to everyone who volunteered! From set-up to take down, helping with wish-lists and cash register, it could not have happened without you! We doubled our sales from the last fair, brought in over $150.00 in loose change to help grow the NE library. What a nice gift from us to them. AND…you generously gifted our teachers with over $600 in books for their classrooms. Our teacher competition in the ending activity included two students this year, but Mr. Booth easily beat them all.
