reading-clipartA HUGE thank you to our fabulous parent group and all of the families who shopped at the Elmira Elementary bookfair! We exceeded our goal and sold over $4,000 in books! This could not happen without all of our volunteers and families. The money earned has already purchased books for the classrooms and will also be used to buy new books for the library!
