Students at Increase Miller Elementary School celebrated their love of books at their annual Book Fair last wek when the cafeteria was filled with a huge variety of books geared for ages pre-school through adult.
The annual fair was sponsored by the PTA and opened with an early morning breakfast, thanks to PTA Co-President DeAnna Pastore who prepared refreshments. The books, and a small assortment of educational novelties, were delivered and maintained by Mainstreet Books. The PTA receives 25 percent of the proceeds.
Additional parent volunteers unpacked boxes, stocked shelves, and assisted students in selecting and purchasing books.
In a break from classes, fifth grader Emma Spada proudly held her new book entitled, “Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.”
“I recommended this to my teacher," she said. "I have a copy at home and bought this one for my teacher because it’s so interesting!”
Students who purchased books for their teachers placed tags on the “Give a teacher a book tree.”
The fair was a successful event yet again, promoting the importance and joy of reading.
