This year Smith Elementary participated in the All for Books program from Scholastic. Students brought in spare change to raise money for teachers to purchase books at the Book Fair for their classroom libraries.
Because of your help, we raised $2,423.23. Our library also matched some of the funds for each grade level equaling a grand total of $3,109.10! All of the money was used to buy books for your child's classroom library. Mrs. Hidalgo's first grade class raised the most money and was rewarded with an ice cream sundae party.
Another huge thank you goes out to our wonderful librarian, Mrs. Hacker, for bringing this program to our school and creating a culture of reading at Smith.
