The 2015-2016 school year proved to be another successful year for the Fall Scholastic Book Fair. The theme was “Monsters” and the students and Mrs. Preston did a fantastic job of decorating the Fair with creative monsters they created by using recycled materials.
This year, our students and their families helped earn almost $2,000 in Scholastic Dollars. This money was then used to purchase books for both classrooms and the library, as well as furnish some classrooms with bean bag chairs, rugs, and other supplies.
In addition to the Fall Book Fair, this school year we added an additional Buy One Gift One Fair. Held in April, this fair benefited not only the students of St. Ambrose, but the children at the Catholic Children’s Home in Alton. For every book sold, a new book was donated to the library at the Children’s Home. Events such as this really showcase the generosity of the students and families at St. Ambrose School.
Theresa Medlock is the chairperson for Book Fair. If you are interested in donating your time and assistance, please reach out to Theresa via FastDirect.
