Our Scholastic Book Fair, held at SGS September 23-26, was a big success!  Here are some highlights:

  • Total number of books sold this Fair: 573+
  • Our pre-tax sales volume was over $4500 earning a net profit of $2294!  We chose to spend $680 of that amount on books from the Book Fair cases.  The remaining $1614 will be used to purchase new books and instructional materials from Scholastic's online catalog.
  • Parents, students and community members purchased 41 books through the “Teacher’s Wish List” program.  Teachers are most appreciative for these additions to their classroom libraries.
  • Our loose change “All for Books” donations totaled $133.50 and was used to purchase approximately 16 new books for the library.  Additionally, Scholastic Book Fairs matches monetary donations with a donation of up to one million books to two non-profit organizations--Kids in Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.  

Our Spring Book Fair will coincide with SGS Parent/Teacher Conferences April
20-23, 2020.

Your book fair purchases put books directly into the hands of our students. Thank you for supporting literacy!
