Parents, children, teachers and community members are invited to attend the Templeton Middle School Scholastic Book Fair March 31 – April 3. The event is held to raise funds for the school library and build classroom reading materials.
The book fair will be open each day from 7:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Extended hours, from 3:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., will be available April 2 during Parent-Teacher Conferences. A wide range of books for young teens and adults will be featured, including mystery and adventure novels, fantasy trilogies, sports guides, graphic novels and the latest bestsellers from more than 150 publishers. With a wide variety of age-appropriate books specifically selected to appeal to middle school tastes and interests, the event encourages reading among students.
Visitors to the fair can check each teacher’s classroom wish list, then purchase and donate a requested book.
The Templeton Home and School parent group again generously donated enough money for each student to receive a $5 voucher toward the purchase of a book of his or her choice. Templeton is committed to encouraging life-long reading habits among its students. Studies indicate that being a reader is more predictive of success than intelligence, economic background or gender.
Templeton Middle School is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Dr., Sussex.
