Spring Book Fair Congratulations

Read1The spring book fair at Side Creek Elementary was so successful that Jody Worley of Scholastic Books sent this letter to our principal this week:

Dear Principal Gariepy,

Thank you for your efforts this spring in making your Scholastic Book Fair a success! Your Book Fair Chair Cindy does an outstanding job keeping your kids excited and engaged in the fair.Getting books into your students’ hands is so pivotal all year round – especially in spring as we head into summer. Keeping their home libraries filled during those summer months is key to your students advancing their reading skills for the following school year! Because of this, I wanted to paint a picture not of success by dollars and cents, but by books and reading minutes.

Based on your most recent book fair; your school community walked away with 1,240 books, which equates to 223,136 independent reading minutes. This success should be celebrated and shared with your families and staff!

 Thank you again for all of your hard work and I look forward to our future work together! As you already know, reading has been proven to increase test scores and improve individual reading confidence. I have no doubt that your fair success will continue to help your students throughout the year.

My contact information is below, please consider me a resource for any of your literacy needs and reach out to me if you have any questions!                                                                                                              

Jody Worley
Scholastic Book Fair Consultant
