Irving’s Spring Book Fair – CLASSROOM COIN CHALLENGE

Monday, April 14 – Thursday, April 17 
Bring your loose change to your class next week and compete to see which homeroom can raise the most money!  The winning class will get to come to the Book Fair with librarian Ms. Noonan during the week of April 21st and use the funds raised to pick out books for our library.  Should we get more mystery books?  More sports books?  You get to decide!  These books will get a bookplate honoring the winning class, be displayed on a special shelf in the library, and the winners will get the first opportunity to check these books out.
Students will also help to select books that our school will donate to Parenthesis Family Center–a local  group that provides a variety of programs to families with young children.  In addition, Scholastic Books will match our monetary donation by giving books to two non-profit organizations, Kids in Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.  These organizations help schools and libraries in both impoverished areas and areas destroyed by natural disasters, such as the Oklahoma and Missouri cities affected by recent years’ tornados.
