Lower School to Host Book Fair, Beginning November 18
Lower School students will combine their love of reading and all things chilly at the Scholastic Arctic Adventure Book Fair, from Nov. 18 - 26, 2019 in the Lower School Library. The arctic-themed book fair will feature a wide selection of literature for all ages, plus a variety of posters, activity books, and other items for purchase. Also on display in the LS Library is an igloo made with the hundreds of plastic jugs collected by library volunteers.
