Scholastic Book Fair All for Books Contest

The Scholastic Book Fair will be headed to the HEMS Library Oct. 1-5. During the week of September 18-21, students at Harrisburg Elementary will participate in an All for Books change drive contest.  The money raised during the contest will benefit our school and community in three ways.  First, all money raised by each class will be used by the classroom teacher to purchase books for his/her classroom library. Second, the money raised by the contest will be counted in the fall Book Fair profits which make it possible to purchase books for the school libraries.  Third, Scholastic will match the amount our students raise in the contest to make donations of books to organizations including the Kids In Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.  The class the collects the most money will win an Enchanted Ice Cream Sundae party!  Please visit with your child about this contest and, if your family chooses to participate and you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Toby Class (classt@harrisburg.k12.mo.us)  or Jennie Simpson (simpsonj@harrisburg.k12.mo.us).
