Book Fair Exceeds Expectations!

A big heartfelt thank you to the King community for making this year's
book fair a success! This event could not have happened without the 20
parent volunteers who generously donated over 150 hours to the fair.
We are grateful for the 5,000+ donations of books, movies and music as
well as the $117 for the One for Books coin drive. Scholastic will
donate 117 books to charities on our behalf and the $117 will go
towards purchasing books for the King Library.

We're happy to report that the Scholastic Book Fair sales exceeded our
expectations by almost 25% and the Used Book Fair not only put books
into our students' and teachers' hands but it helped King school
donate boxes of movies to the Mott Children's Hospital and boxes of
books to needy charities.
