BOOK FAIR AND CLASSROOM COIN CHALLENGE

The Book Fair is here now at the CHS Library October 27-November 5! 

For the next two weeks there will be a CLASSROOM COIN COMPETITION to raise money for library books.  Scholastic Book Fairs will also match donations, with up to one million books to three nonprofit organizations:  Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. and the Kids In Need Foundation.  Bring your change!  The homeroom with the most money collected will receive Mr. D’Amico’s famous meatball subs!

If you’d like to shop online, go to http://scholastic.com/schoolbookfairs and select your school.  Online shopping will continue through November 18.

Books and other items will be available for purchase with proceeds going toward new books for the high school library.
