This week LMST will hold our annual English and French Book Fair co-hosted by Scholastic and local bookseller Lisa Langille, respectively.

Dates and times are:

  • Wednesday, April 13th – 1pm to 4pm
  • Thursday, April 14th – 9am – 8pm (access through outer gym door)
  • Friday, April 15th – 9am – 12pm

Each book sold at the Fair helps raise money for our school and provides new books for our library. At the 2015 English Book Fair, $3,800 was raised in book sales. Scholastic then contributed $2,250 worth of English and French books to our Library (Thanks Scholastic!).

We would love to exceed last years’ tally and secure even more new books for our library so please come and help us out! We’ll have Goal Charts posted in both events to keep track of how much money we’ve raised.

 

Class Room Wish Lists

Another great way to ensure our children get started with reading and keep on reading all year long is with the Classroom Wish List program. We urge you to stop by the Classroom Wish List displays when you first arrive at the Fair. Take a moment to learn how purchasing books and donating them to your child’s teacher, can give our readers even greater access to the books they want to read by expanding existing classroom libraries.

All teachers at LMST will be asked to fill-in their “book wish list” before the Fair dates. When you come to the fair look for your child’s teacher’s name on the Wish List Displays. Every generous gift you make will be recognized with a special bookplate, identifying your family or child as the donor.

 

Everyone is welcome – hope to see you there!
