For the Love of Reading: Saint Benedict Academy Hosts Semi-Annual Book Fair

Saint Benedict Academy is pleased to once again host the Scholastic Book Fair program.  Twice each year, Saint Benedict Academy hosts the Book Fair as a way to encourage the love of reading, and as a fundraiser for the school library. Principal Sr. Betty commented, “It’s a win/win for the school, students and teachers!”

How do the school, students, and teachers take part? Throughout the Book Fair week, students have the chance to peruse the books for sale at the Fair and then either create wish lists to give to their parents, or to shop the Fair themselves. Teachers also create wish lists of resources to be used in their classrooms, which can also be purchased by parents. The funds raised are then used to purchase even more books for the library. Like so many  Saint Benedict Academy community events, the Fair is managed by parents who generously volunteer their time.
