The Scholastic cases have been packed and sent back to the warehouse, the online sales have closed, and the numbers have been crunched. Our annual Scholastic Book Fair was a success! Sales totaled $4,318.06 earning $1,014.93 in cash to fund next year’s Library Media programs, projects, and resources. More importantly, though, the Scholastic Book Fair incites excitement about reading , and there is no other skill that has the power to impact people more than learning to successfully read. Check out the statistics below highlighting the impact reading just 20 minutes each day can have on academic achievement. Special thanks to the Book Crew students who assisted in managing this event as well as to the Durham teachers and PTA who advertised, shopped at, and helped with the fair, and of course, to the students and families who shopped. Soon to be on display are new Scholastic books purchased at this year’s fair! Read on Wildcats!
