The PAC at Strathcona are truly amazing. Not only do they hold popular ice cream sales, serve up hot chocolate and caroling at Christmas, throw staff appreciation celebrations, and support the staff and parents in many ways, the Amazing PAC host a yearly Scholastic Bookfair! For the past three years, the PAC has organized and run a multi-day book event that has kids buzzing about reading! This bookfair raises a substantial amount of money for the school library and classroom libraries. This year sales totaled $8,600, which resulted in over $1000 spent on classroom libraries and over $2000 to the school library. WOW!
Here I am wheeling over $1600 worth of new library books! The kids are going to be so excited! Thanks to Roni for the photo.
A huge thank you to the PAC Exec for organizing and supporting literacy in our school. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered their time. Thanks to all the school staff who helped, especially Margot who processed all the material. And of course thank you to all the students, parents, and staff members who bought books at the Book Fair!
