The Book Fair has arrived!

Posted by Laura Losch on October 27, 2008

The Book Fair is here this week and was plenty busy today! Seventh graders will be stopping by tomorrow and eighth graders on Wednesday. I hope everyone will have a chance to stop by and check out all the great books for sale. We also have two great promotions going on this week: The Coin Drop Game and the Guess the Gumballs Contest. Stop by and guess how many gumballs are in the plastic jar and win a tote bag filled with books, a poster, candy, and half the gumballs. There will be one girl winner and one boy winner, so the gumballs will be split among the two. The winners will be announced on Friday’s afternoon announcements. We also have a fun coin drop game. You drop any coin in the large water jug and if it lands on the cup (and stays there) you win a prize. Many of the sixth graders were addicted to this game today – it’s challenging, but really fun! Good luck – have fun – see you there!
