Fairview's Family Reading Night & Bookfair

November 21, 2009

On Thursday, November 19th, Fairview sponsored its annual Family Night and Bookfair. The theme is Destinations Around the World. Classrooms decorated their door to represent a country for a contest to be held on Friday. The top 3 winners receive books for their classroom libraries. The day began with classroom visits to the Bookfair so that students could complete their wish lists. In the evening, student returned with their families to pick up their passport to travel to classrooms in order to show off Literacy Stations for their grade level. Kindergarten parents learned about Breakthrough to Literacy. Curious George made a guest appearance and parents received gottcha's for using Cool Tools. Their names were entered into a drawing for an opportunity to win some fun prizes and to demonstrate routines that the students use daily. A delicious dinner was served and every student left with (luggage) a bag of books and reading games. The evening was a great success thanks to our Fabulous Fairview Families! The Bookfair will continue through November 25th.
