Another Successful Scholastic Book Fair!
From March 15-18, the parents, students and staff of PS4 enjoyed another Scholastic Book Fair. This year's theme: Book Fair Carnival! Students in first and second grade were especially excited about the book fair after seeing a performance of the Chinese Acrobats a week before the fair. "I can only do one of those tricks", said Horacio N. from Ms. Hodge's class. Books with a carnival theme, like Olivia and the School Carnival, were sold at the fair.
This year was especially exciting for PS4, because according to Ms. Lennon (librarian and Book Fair Chairperson), "we exceeded our goal in book sales". "With each book fair", she said, "we are able to purchase books for classroom libraries".
A special thanks goes out to the following Book Fair Student Jr. Crew Members for their help assisting parents and students during the week of the fair: Adja C., Seleny P. and Franklin S. from class 501 and Rafael M. and Alex G. from class 521.
