During our latest Book Fair, students raised money during the “All for Books” contest. Money raised during this week long contest will go directly to purchasing books for teachers’ classrooms. Our students did a great job in raising to add to the libraries of our teachers. The competition pitted our 6th grade vs. our 5th grade with the 5th grade raising the most money. Two 5th grade students were randomly chosen to throw a pie in Mr. Simpson’s face. Click here for pictures of the event!
