I wanted to post a short thank you to everyone who helped with the amazing book fair to benefit our media center. Our PTO co-chairs, Ashley Kane and Lyn Jellison, put in insane hours to make sure that it ran smoothly. I'm pretty sure neither of them had a decent night's sleep or saw their families for any length of time for days. Thank you to Cathy Carlomango for running our fun raffle! Congratulations to Jimmy and Lila for winning the Kindle HDX's that were raffled off! (see their sweet picture below) Thank you to Amy Wall for making our teacher wish list posters. Thank you to Sunny at Little Shop of Stories for picking wonderful titles and helping us with our numerous special orders. Thank you to the dozens of volunteers who worked the registers, packed or unpacked books, helped our students, and much more! Thank you to all the F.AVE teachers who took time out of their precious classroom time to bring students to browse and buy books. And last but not least, thank you to all the students, parents, and grandparents who purchased books for themselves or as gifts for their teachers and supported our media center!
Our bestselling book was Grimm's Fairy Tales; we sold about 100 copies of this book! I wonder why... Other big selling titles included the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, books from the Grimm series, Minecraft Handbooks, and Wreck This Journal.
We hope you are enjoying your new books!
