Scholastic Book Fair 2023

Scholastic Book Fair Volunteers 2023

On May 19, 2023, we closed out one of our best book fairs Ellerhorst has ever seen.  We reviewed the receipts and recognized that we sold more books than ever before.  While that means thousands of dollars were raised for our school’s teachers, more importantly it means that our children received more books that they really were interested in reading.  

A special thank you goes out to our PTA for committing to make sure that every student had one free book.  This is the first time PTA has done this, and it is a great way for our community to promote reading for our children.  

A huge thank you and a heartfelt shout out to all the volunteers who took time off work, spent hours setting up the fair, being there for classes, before and after school, and then packing it all up on Friday afternoon.  Our Secretary, Ms. Andrea Flores, said it best for all of us:  “Thank you for sharing your awesome energy and love of reading with our community.”  

Finally, an extra special shout out to Jamie Aranda who chaired the event and was there every step of the way.  

Special events cannot happen without our dedicated family volunteers.  We wish all our children happy reading this summer!

Jamie, Chair of Book Fair 2023
