Scholastic Book Fair: Sir Readalot's Castle: Enter the Kingdom of Books!
For those of you who do not know me, my name is Lisa Hempfling and I am the new librarian at Bright Elementary. I actually started this position at the beginning of last April, the week after Spring Break and the week before our spring book fair. It was wonderful to get to experience my new position at the beginning of this year, seeing old familiar faces and get to meet some new ones.
It’s almost time for our first book fair of the year! I am so excited about this year’s fall theme, as I enjoy reading and learning about the medieval period in our history. This year’s Scholastic theme is Sir Readalot's Castle: Enter the Kingdom of Books! Each year the students of Bright Elementary School have the opportunity to purchase books they are interested in, which in turn, motivates them to read more. The Scholastic book fair offers students a large variety of books which vary in interest and reading level. Students will be able to shop at school during the week of September 29th-October 3rd during their classroom library time. Families may shop together at our special event on Wednesday, October 1st from 3:35-6:30. Also, you may shop at our online book fair
beginning September 21st at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/brightelementaryschool4 until October 11th. I am looking forward to seeing the students get excited about reading at this year’s Scholastic book fair and I just can’t wait for the fun to begin.
