Scholastic Book Fair merchandise arrives at SRCSA

Man wearing dark shirt and pants, with dark sunglasses on, pushes metal cabinet into place next to a second cabinet. Several boxes with the Scholastic Book Fair logo are balanced on top of each cabinet.

Excitement is building for Scholastic Book Fairs at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts. Eleven cabinets arrived today, as well as a multitude of boxes. Here’s Scholastic driver Norman Miranda, bringing them into the library. Parents, check for recent communications about Book-Fair preview on Monday morning; each adult who drops in will receive a raffle ticket for each of your children who attends the school. And if school staff catches students reading ... I for one hope to give out many more tickets between now and start of fair.

Prize raffle for students ‘caught reading’

Stack of gold-colored slips of paper with a castle-style logo for 'SRCSA Literacy Week 2018.' Printing on the slips of paper state, 'You've Been Caught Reading! Enter this ticket in the raffle at our Book Fair Feb. 26-March 2nd.'

Compounding the excitement of officially starting work as Library Technician at my school, on Friday I handed out my first raffle ticket to a student whom I “caught reading!”

The raffle tickets are a promotion for “Literacy Week” at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts. The tickets were distributed to school staff on Friday, so we could start giving them to students. With each raffle ticket that a student receives, the student can enter a prize drawing.

“Literacy Week” will take place this year from Feb. 26 to March 2. I’m looking forward to supporting a Scholastic Book Fair in the library among “Literacy Week” activities.
