We invite you to visit our exciting Book Fair during SLC (Student Led Conference) week and experience a celebration of reading that provides students, faculty and families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.
Our Book Fair is part of a reading event that brings to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they'll get.
