A Glimpse Back at Sickles School’s Book Fair

Call it a well-read event.

Fair Haven’s Viola L. Sickles School officials are claiming major success with the annual PTA Book Fair.

Featuring various genres and titles from Scholastic Publishing, the Book Fair was held from Nov. 14 to 18. Family Night at the fair allows parents and siblings take part. It was held on the evening of Nov. 15 and was dubbed a “door-buster” success.

Many students and families took the opportunity to buy books for use in the classroom as well, using the teachers’ wish lists as a guideline.

This year’s Book Fair at Sickles School was organized by PTA Book Fair Committee members Jen Baron, Vicky Hays, Heather Lombardo, Kerry Maguire, and Sheilah Olson.

The Knollwood School Book Fair is set for April.
