PVO volunteers literally rolled out the red carpet for our students during the Scholastic Book Fair. Who would imagine that a dimly lit corridor and former classroom could be transformed into a castle complete with drawbridge, sentry, gargoyles, and parapets?
Students from pre-K to 8th grade loved spending time shopping for books and trinkets all to benefit the Media Center and Reading Room. The raffles and estimation games were wildly popular and competition in the Boys vs. Girls Challenge was fierce, with the boys winning a dress-down day due to a few last-minute donations.
Many thanks to Book Fair Chair Susie Miramontes for her vision, creativity, and endurance in planning and running this week-long event. Thanks as well to the dozens of parent volunteers who assisted with decorating and staffing the book fair.
