Students from San Saba Middle School will host a special Book Fair from Scholastic on March 22-26, during school hours, to help raise funds for library books and equipment.
The book fair will be open each day from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM and feature a wide range of books for preschool, young teens and adults, including mystery and adventure novels, fantasy trilogies, sports guides, manga, and the latest best-sellers from more than 150 publishers. Parents, children, teachers, and the community are invited to attend.
On Tuesday, March 23, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, the book fair will feature Family Night for families to browse and buy.
Student volunteers, dubbed the Crew, helped to plan the fair and will also help run it. From creating special promotions and merchandising displays to managing inventory and assisting shoppers with their selections, Crew members learn real life skills while helping to make reading for pleasure a cool activity at their school.
"Our Student Crew is working very hard to put on a great book fair event – one that promotes literacy and reading, while at the same time raising money for much-needed school resources," said Mrs. Saucillo, Library Aide at San Saba Middle School.
Fair attendees can also help build classroom libraries by purchasing books for teachers through the Classroom Wish List program.
Sponsorships are available. Area businesses interested in making a donation are asked to contact Naomi Saucillo at 325-372-3698.
Proceeds from the fair will also be used to purchase essential classroom resources and support school projects at San Saba Middle School.
