Sir Readalot Book Fair a huge success!

Each year we have two book fairs at Summit...one in November and then another in February.  This is the way our Media Center earns the bulk of its funding for new resources.  This book fair was a Sir Readalot Medieval theme.  Our students participated in daily book talks over our WSUM morning TV announcements, participated in a Boys vs. Girls All For Books contest (we raised $99.91 to give towards our PTA's Shop and Share in which they help families in need during the holiday season), had a poster raffle, voted on "How many mints does it take to freshen a dragon's breath," had a school-wide reading contest (the top reader from each class gets to be principal for the day), and the top classes got a special storytime from our principals.  Also we raised over $2,000.00 for the Media Center and teacher classrooms.  So much fun!
Principal for the Day
These students read the most minutes during our Book Fair week.  Their reward was to be principal for the day.  They got to participate in morning annoucements, carry the walkie-talkie around and visit rooms, monitor lunch duty, and hold a staff meeting.  FUN!
