Cheer, Cheer....it's finally here!
There's more than spring in the air....It's time for the Scholasatic Book Fair!
Students will come down with their reading/ELA teacher during their regularly scheduled library time.
They can also purchase books before and after school.
The book fair starts Monday and goes until May 21st.  We can take cash, credit cards and checks payable to WMS.  
What a great opportunity to get a jump on summer reading and start earning words for our back-to-school Duct Tape event. For every 20,000 words read, students get a piece of duct tape to tape an administrator or Mrs. Bieker to the gym wall during our first convo.
Don't be a square, buy something from the book fair!
