16 School News MAY 2016 COLLEGEPARKPAPER.COM St. Charles Borromeo held a Scholastic Book Fair April 19th through the 24th. The excitement started with students participating in a Book Fair Poster Con- test where the winning class received a free dress day. Students and teachers previewed the books in order to make their wish lists. The Book Fair was also open in the evening before the Home & School Association meeting where parents received their student’s Iowa Assessment scores. Scholastic offered a wide range of titles for every level and interest. It’s a wonderful selection of engag- ing and affordable books for every reading level that is brought to the school. All proceeds from the Book Fair benefit the Library/Media Center at SCBCS. Thank you to all of the volunteers and supporters who made this year’s book fair a huge success. If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School campus, we invite you to our Open House, May 10th 8:30-11:30 a.m. Peace, Love, and Books.
