The Carl L. Dixson Primary School art room was transformed into a book shop the week of November 26. Instead of paper, paints and brushes, students found tables and shelves of books for sale as part of the bi-annual Scholastic Book Fair.
When first grade students stopped in, they were an active bunch selecting books on ponies and superheroes.
Volunteer parent Kim Ware was among those helping students fill out selection forms. She was greeted with several hugs, including one from her own daughter. Students know Ms. Ware well as she often is in the classroom reading to students.
Students were assisted in filling out a form for the books they had selected. The forms would be given to their parents who had the option of purchasing books off their students’ list at a later time.
In addition to students enjoying the books, teachers benefit from the sale as well as they receive a free book and a $5 coupon toward the purchase of a second book.
