Book Fair Thank Yous

Thank you to everyone who visited our fall Scholastic Book Fair last week. We are so excited for all the new books in our student’s homes, while raising $2300 for WME!

WME’s Book Fair wouldn’t happen without the help of many volunteers who sign up to work at the fair all week. Thank you so much, we appreciate your willingness to help, this year especially, and hope you had fun!

We want to also send a huge thank you to our Book Fair co-chairs, Becca Eggleston and Carmel Hamilton, for all their hard work in bringing the fall book fair to WME. They definitely had to be creative this year to make it happen! And thank you to Joni Milliron, our PTO Treasurer, for keeping track of the money and sales all week. We also want to thank WME parent and owner of DLC Media, Danny Colella, for filming and producing our Facebook Live video from the Book Fair. We so appreciate you all!

A final THANK YOU to our two Book Fair sponsors this year, Marie Hunter of ReMax Professionals and Belleview Animal Clinic. With their help we will be able to provide cookie parties for Mrs. Goodman’s class and Mr. Moore’s class, our two All for Books winning classrooms! Please help us support these great businesses that are always willing to give back to WME! Click on their logos below to be sent to their websites for more information.
