2017 Saint Andrew's Read-a-Thon and Book Fair!
It is the time of year for lots of reading as we all settle back into school. Mrs Quint and her amazing team of student Library Liaisons have been hard at work all summer planning a magical read-a-thon and book fair adventure to support our library program.

To generate excitement for this year, we have some delightfully frigid motivation!!! If the entire school collects $1.00 over last year’s gross total - $14,837, Mr. Wagner and Mrs. Greene have agreed to have a bucket of ice and water dumped over their heads while the students cheer and munch on ice cream sandwiches! Top fundraisers will get to help pour the bucket!!!!
Kickoff: Friday, September 22nd 4-6:30pm at school
Barnes and Noble Bookfair: Tuesday, Sept 26th 4-7pm
Read-a-thon: Tuesday, Sept 26th through Tuesday, October 10th
Mrs Quint is telling all of the classes what to expect the week of September 11, and sending home packets with each child on September 14.
WE NEED SOME HELP!
See the two links below for both volunteer spots and items to donate for the kick off event!
Let's get our magical reading skills rolling and make this event even better than last year! Thank you SO much for your support of our fabulous library program.
