Thank you for supporting the Scholastic Signature Book Fair.  Students had a lot of fun finding new books to read.  We were able to raffle off books to students for our late night book raffle and DogFish restaurant night, donate books to the Media Center and utilize the All for Books program for students.  We raised over $4,000 for the PTA!
