Book Fair - November 2017

Scholastic Book Fair Results - November 2017            
Thank you to the many parents, students and staff who volunteered and lent a helping hand to make our Pine Grove Scholastic Book Fair Literacy Event a huge success.  At our Book Fair, the Pine Grove community and families helped our school by purchasing $6313.15 in books – thank you!  By making purchases at the Scholastic Book Fair, our school will be able to purchase more books for our classrooms and for our Learning Commons. This event helped promote literacy in our school by providing students with a variety of fiction and non-fiction materials at all levels and has allowed students to appreciate good quality literature. A student in Mr. Kybartas' class won the Family Night Event draw – she has won $25.00 worth of books for herself and $25.00 worth of books for her teacher and classroom – CONGRATULATIONS!

Enjoy your new books and happy reading Pine Grove!
