The last week of November was Bond's annual Scholastic Book Fair. Elementary students and parents were invited to come and share in the celebration of literacy at the school.
The highlight was the fun family night on November 29th. Besides a good dinner, this year’s Wild West-themed Book Fair offered a variety of fun games and contests, such as Lasso Game, Cowboy/Cowgirl Dress Up, Memory, Treat Table, Horseshoe Game, Wanted Poster, Guess Jar, Saloon and many more.
"Reading is vital to leading a better life. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals." said Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Tombler, the Librarians at Bond. "Children need access to great books and the opportunity to choose what they want to read, and they also need time for reading. We have many books here to motivate them to do more reading."
They mentioned that with the involvement from parents and teachers, we can inspire children to practice reading and read more frequently. "Together, we can make a difference in their lives that will last a lifetime."
A big thank you goes out to everyone who was involved with our Family Night at the Book Fair to make it a success!
