The Elmwood PATT's first Scholastic Book Fair of 2017-18 was a great success as students and parents supported their school with lots of purchases — and enthusiasm for reading! The weeklong event took place from Monday, Oct. 2, to Friday, Oct. 6.

With a theme of "Wild West — Saddle Up and Read!," the fair was located in the main hallway outside Elmwood's main office. As part of the fair, an cream social for parents and students was held the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 3.

About 20 PATT members helped organize and run the fair, said PATT president Michela Shipinski. This year's book fair chairperson is Radwa Saker. Another PATT Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the spring during the second week of April.

The money earned from each fair provides the PATT with credit in "Scholastic Dollars," which are used to purchase books and other items for the library and school. Thanks, PATT, for organizing this great event!
