Under the Sea Book Fair


We are currently hosting our spring book fair.  Scholastic's spring theme is Under the Sea: Explore an Ocean of Books.  The media center has been transformed into an underwater sanctuary!  The decorations include a complete ocean wall outside the media center and a submarine, scuba diver, and jellyfish inside the media center.  My fabulous art teacher also contributed a beautiful mermaid and a shark made from a laundry basket, foam, and duct tape.  After setting up the books and decorations, I held a teacher preview after school.  Teachers snacked on submarine sandwiches, seashell pasta salad, seaweed (spinach) dip, shark teeth (cheese triangles), and sponge cake.  They also created wish lists of books that they would like to have donated to their classroom libraries.  The first day we were open, we held two family events: an All Pro Dads breakfast and Cultural Arts Night.  It was a long day (7:00 A.M. - 8:30 P.M.) but it was our most profitable single day ever!
