Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The 2012 Scholastic Book Fair reached over $10,300 in sales earning Reidy Creek over $5200 in books and other educational resources.
Students, teachers, and families also donated $401 in loose change and dollars for Scholastic’s All For Books program. This means $220 came back to Reidy Creek in books, 401 books were donated to Scholastic’s charities of choice and $401 in books were donated to the Monarch School for homeless children. We had a contest between the girls and boys and the grand totals were within dollars of one another so all students received a frosty treat as a reward for their overwhelming generosity. Everyone was a winner during a book fair – our Reidy Creek Coyotes received many new books, as did children who are less fortunate.
The RCPTA Scholastic Book Fair Committee, co-chaired by Jennifer Foster and Lisa Smith, would like to sincerely thank the students, parents and teachers who volunteered and shopped at the Fair. See you at the BOGO fair in the Spring and keep reading!
