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 $4,701.91 earning $2,582.50 in Scholastic resources. Through Scholastic dollars earned from previous fairs, the Durham Media Center has added a variety of new books, device charging stations and a multimedia table. The media center has even refreshed its furniture with modern, mobile tables and chairs with the help of funds garnered through book fair. Throughout the school year, seasonal displays and signage, and special events like trivia giveaways and goody bags for Scholastic’s Summer Reading Challenge participants and October’s Spooky Books Trivia are made possible because of these funds. 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. Special thanks to the parents and students who assisted in managing this event as well as to Durham teachers and PTA who advertised, shopped at, and helped with the fair. Already on display are many of the titles offered at this year’ book fair, so be sure to check out the “New Book” display in the media center soon. Thanks again Wildcats!
