Festival du Livre, Oct., 2022 Summary & Celebrations & Upcoming Scholastic Book Fair, end of November


Three Day Festival du Livre, Oct. 11, 12, 13, 2022:

Thank you Bastion Bobcats students, families, and teachers for your tremendous support of our Festival du Livre.  We made over $3200 which is up $765 from last year - wow!  Teacher-librarian Mme M, combined with Bastion Bobcat efforts, earned 50% Scholastic reward money.  That means she could buy close to $1600 books from the book fair - AND SHE DID!  New chapter books, graphic novels, leveled “ER” readers, picture books and nonfiction information books await "cataloging" (adding those titles into our library software [Alexandria]) and book-spine, call number stickers.  

Interesting fact: just five books sold online!  Mme deduces (summarizes) that Bastion Bobcats like to shop in person at the book fair.  Albeit, it is very nice to have the option to shop in-person or digitally.

The English Scholastic book fair will be the last two weeks in November:
- Nov. 21, 22, 23, 24 will be in-class library sales only

- Nov. 28, 29, 30, Dec. 1 will be in-class library sales and before school, BIG recess, and after school (closed little recess and 3pm on the last day of the book fair, Thu., Dec 1st)

- Digital sales Nov. 21st - Dec. 3rd


- adult cashiers: click here for the schedule; email Mme M if you can help out, smurrell@sd83.bc.ca 

- Thu., Dec. 1st clean-up, & pack-up crew 

I'm very excited about our upcoming second book fair. Email me if you have questions &/or can help out. In the meantime, KEEP ON READING! Mme. Murrells-Allaway, aka Mme M, your Ardent Teacher-Librarian.
