We are calling it a contest because the class with the most loose change will have one person chosen from their class to compete with the teachers in the book fair ending activity. Teachers are voted into this activity when books are purchased. Lots to look forward to, see you at the fair!! Volunteers are still needed, especially Friday clean-up, please check the link to sign up.
