Central’s 2nd annual BOGO book fair is next week!

Our Buy One Get One Free book fair is next Tuesday, May 17, from 8am – 7pm. We need help setting up on Monday afternoon and tearing down on Tuesday night. Here’s the link to sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090444a9af2da57-bogo1

We are also partnering with Scholastic to do a summer read-a-thon, from May 9 – Sept 9, 2016.  Kids from all over the world are joining forces to set a new world record for the most minutes read!  Log on to www.scholastic.com/summer and register each child; they will get their own unique username.  Your child can log on anytime, as many times as they want over the summer and log how many minutes they have read.  The School with the most minutes logged will get its name in the Scholastic Book of Records! Any questions regarding the read-a-thon should be directed to Anna Lee (annaelee@live.com), Martha Curiel (martha_curiel_rn@yahoo.com) or Tracy Bohrer (tjgett@yahoo.com)
