Ashaway School Welcomes the Scholastic Book Fair!
This past week the students of Ashaway School visited the Scholastic Book Fair! Our PTO, who runs the event, kicked it off with a fabulous (and free!) ice cream social for all who wanted to stop by and visit on Monday night. After enjoying a delicious Cold Stone Creamery sundae and saying hello to Clifford the Big Red Dog, students and parents had the opportunity to get a jump on their shopping! (To see pictures, go to our picture gallery at http://kmman.magix.net/album.)
Throughout the rest of the week, students visited the book fair. Each class had a time scheduled to go to the foyer which was set up with lots of displays. I am excited to say that a portion of the proceeds from the book fair will go toward buying some new books for the library, and I was also able to select some titles right off the shelves! (And yes, Callie, I did request a copy of Finally!)
It was a terrific week, and I loved watching the students' excitement as they discovered books they were eager to read. To all the PTO members who worked hard to make it happen, and to the many families who supported their efforts, I send out a great, big THANK YOU!! :)
