ACSM and APA host first Scholastic book fair

Scholastic Book Fairs

AcadeMir Charter School Middle and AcadeMir Preparatory Academy hosted its first combined Scholastic Book Fair in the schools’ new building from Sept. 26-Sept. 30.

During the school day, different classes were invited down to look at and purchase books. The four days of sales concluded with an event open to the community on Friday evening, featuring books for sale and food trucks.

“The book fair is able to promote literacy,” ACSM and APA assistant principal Mrs. Coile said. “It encourages students to read things they like or they’re interested in.”

While wet weather might have prevented some families from coming, participation was significant, with the food trucks getting particular attention.
