Thank you friends, families, and students for all of your support this past week at our Scholastic Book Fair. Your support allowed us to purchase all remaining items on the teachers' wish lists to help build their classroom libraries (about $300 worth of books!) and $400 in Scholastic Dollars for Mrs. Fifield to add books to our school's library.
We'd like to thank all of the teachers for their flexibility this week with fair. We'd also like to thank all of our volunteers for helping us run the fair. Our volunteers really helped to make our fair a huge success!
The winners of the book prize packages were Trey in Kindergarten and Lauren in 4th grade. They were very excited to get their prizes!
If you missed the fair, we still have the online fair available until November 10th. All items purchased through this link will be shipped for free directly to the school. All proceeds from the online fair will go directly to purchase books for the school's library. http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/sebagoelementaryschool

Sebago Elementary School is open once again to the Community Walking Club! Please join us on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings from 5-7 pm on days when school is in session to walk the halls. We've done the math and 8 laps around the interiors hallways of the school is equivalent to one mile. So, come burn off some energy and beat those winter blues. Bring a friend to make it more fun. We look forward to seeing you!
We will hosting a Scholastic Book Fair next week during Parent Teacher Conferences. Volunteers are needed to help run the fair during the school day and after school during the evenings of the conferences. If you are able to volunteer (even if it is for just an hour or two), please contact our new school librarian, Ann Fifield, or Kirsten Goff to let us know when you are available. To make it more fun, you can do it with a friend also! Proceeds from the fair will benefit our school library.
As an added bonus, this year you can access our book fair through the web at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/sebagoelementaryschool
Purchases made through the website still benefit the school. Thank you for supporting our school!
