Book fair next week

The book fair posters are up! Here's a chance to stock up on books at great prices and help the school raise important funds at the same time!

The school's book fair runs the week of Monday, October 22nd to Friday, October 26th in the school's music room. That's the same week as parent teacher interviews, so you can pop in and have a look at some titles during your visit to the school.

Books make great gifts! They're especially handy to have on hand for last-minute birthday party presents when you forgot to go shopping. Not that we do that stuff or anything...

"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him." 
- Maya Angelou 

"Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness."
- Helen Keller

"There is no friend as loyal as a book." 
- Ernest Hemingway
