Templeton Middle School will host the Scholastic Book Fair March 29 – April 4, which will be open to students during the school day. Extended hours, from 3:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., will be available for families and community members for the Family Sneak Preview and Grand Opening on March 29 and during Parent-Teacher Conferences on April 4. The Templeton Home and School will sponsor ice cream socials for both extended evening events.
Along with the opportunity for students and families to browse and purchase books, the book fair helps raise funds to obtain essential classroom and library resources. Visitors to the fair can check each teacher’s classroom wish list, then purchase and donate a requested book. With a wide variety of age-appropriate books specifically selected to appeal to middle school tastes and interests, the event encourages reading among students. Students will discover books that are fun, entertaining, inspirational and a resource for dealing with real-life experiences and emerging emotions. The book fair also features bestselling novels and cookbooks that adults will find interesting and useful.
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.
