All Hamilton School District residents are invited to attend Templeton Middle School’s Scholastic Book Fair Oct. 4-7. The Book Fair will be open each day while school is in session and from 3:45 p.m. to 7:45 a.m. during parent-teacher conferences on Oct. 6.
Templeton Library-Media Specialist Anita Paque said the purpose of the event is to promote reading as an educational, fun and exciting activity. Research shows that there is a need for increased reading practice, according to Paque. A recent study of literature-based reading shows that overall students read only 7.1 minutes a day. The study also shows that reading practice helps to increase reading performance.
Templeton Middle School is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Dr., Sussex.
