Thank you , Seaforth Families!

bookaneerThank you to all the students and their families who came to the Scholastic Book Fair. It was a great success, so much so that Ms. Higgins will be able to purchase new books with the funds that we raised. As they say, everybody wins: families have new books for their home and the library has new books for the students! The winner of the Family Draw prize was a student from Mrs. Clutton’s class. Both Mrs. Clutton and the student won $25.00 worth of books. A big thank you to Mrs.Michelle Sherwood and her crew of volunteers who devoted their time to run the book fair. Also, thanks to the library monitors from Division 3 who volunteered to help at lunchtime and after school.

Thank you to all the students and families who attended our Scholastic Book Fair at the end of November. Our sales were an all-time high which has allowed us to take our profits as books and cash. The winner of the Family/Teacher Book Prize Draw was Evan. He and his teacher, Mrs. Graham each won $25.00 worth of books. An extra-special big Thanks to the parents and library monitors who volunteered at the book fair. Without your assistance, the book fair would not happen!

Spring Scholastic Book Fair

 roundbookfairThanks to the families who supported the book fair in April. It was the most successful book fair ever. We were able to purchase new books with the funds that we raised. Congratulations to Erin who won the $25.00 Door Prize and to her teacher, Mrs. Bisceglia who also won the Teacher’s prize. Also, a big  ‘Thank  You’  to the parents, former students, and library monitors for organizing and operating the book fair.  At this time, I would like to thank Mrs. Birdie Chan for being the Book Fair Chairperson for the past few years and is stepping down from this position.

Book Fair was a big success!

Thank you to all the students and families who supported the Book Fair in late November. We had record sales which helps me obtain new and exciting books for the students at Seaforth! The winners of the Family Event door prize were Lucas Mankoo and his Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Tazumi. They each got $25.00 in books. Many Thanks to the Book Fair organizer, Mrs. Birdie Chan and her contingent of parent-volunteers. Also Thanks to the Library Monitors (and a few former ones now at Mountain) for their assistance at the Breakfast with Books and the Book Fair. This was the first time we had a morning event, Breakfast with Books which was especially organized for parents who wanted to shop before going off to work. It ended up being a lovely event!
