All-Star Book Fair

Scholastic Book Fair at PS4

We love the book fair!
If you recently heard someone scream "Woooo hoooo! The Book Fair is here", that was Ms. Lennon when the Scholastic truck pulled up to PS4 last week.  For an entire week, students, staff, parents and guests are able to visit the school's library which is transformed into a Scholastic Book Fair.  This season, the All-Star Book Fair took place from November 9-16.  "Our local public library has been closed for renovation since 2011 and we're told it won't be open until next Spring", said Ms. Lennon, the school's librarian.  "Book fairs keep kids excited about reading".  Parents are happy about the opportunity to purchase books and support the school.  "These books are actually a bit cheaper than they are in the stores", said one parent of a first grader who purchased over $100 in books.

Thanks to all who visited our book fair!  Ms. Lennon would like to give a special thanks to her Student Crew (Honor Society Members Brianna P., Shawn T., and Adrianna H. from class 501) who helped visitors find the books they needed.  Although the fair is over, from now until November 27th, books that were sold at the fair will be available online!  Click here to go to the online book fair and take a look at the slide show below to see highlights from the event.
