Grimes Schools hosts Scholastic Book Fair

Grimes Schools hosts Scholastic Book Fair

Grimes School hosted the Scholastic Book Fair from Monday, February 27, to Friday, March 3, 2023.

"Grimes School believes in literacy!" said Lucille Martir, assistant principal at Grimes School. "We had a fantastic book fair this year. The Scholastic motto starts with a choice: What do I want to read? And since being empowered to choose books is a milestone opportunity to identify and express our own voices, kids left the Book Fair bolder, prouder, and stronger individuals."

Profits will assist grade 8 students' end of the year activities and also improve the middle school book collection and resources.
