‘Monster Book Fair’: annual book fair to run Oct. 12-22

Special to The PREVIEW

“Monster Book Fair — Reading is so much fun, you’ll get goosebumps!” will be running Oct. 12-22 during school hours in the Pagosa Springs Elementary School library.

The community, families and teachers are invited to attend this Scholastic Book Fair and participate in all the activities that accompany the monster theme, which are all geared to instill the love of books and reading.

The Partners In Education Committee (P.I.E.) has organized Family Night, which will be held Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. A delicious and nutritious homemade dinner will be served in the cafeteria. Several other activities will entertain all monster fans. All families are invited to the school for an evening full of splendid fun, to shop the Book Fair and to enjoy a meal together.

The Book Fair serves several purposes for the school. First, it’s a great way to introduce new literature and highlight existing books that inspire children to read. Second, it is an opportunity for every student and their family to engage in an all-school activity and create camaraderie around education. Finally, it is a fundraiser, as proceeds from book fairs are used for reading and educational improvements that are not funded through the school budget.

The community is invited to attend the Book Fair as a shopper or volunteer.
