CMS Hosts Book Fair

Colchester Middle School has been hosting a book fair in the library this week. The fair, which is provided by children’s book publisher Scholastic, concludes today. Proceeds from the fair support programs and materials for CMS’s library, benefiting our students and providing them with new opportunities to add to their personal book collections.

Among the fair’s offerings are twenty of the Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) Reading Award titles for this year. (We have talked about this program in CSD Spotlight in the past; click here to read that May 2011 article.)

Students also may purchase books written by renown author Mary Downing Hahn. Ms. Hahn has received multiple awards, including the Dorothy Canfield Fisher (DCF) Reading Award. We are excited to announce that she will visit CMS in April to speak with students and to sign their books. More information about her visit will be available at it draws nearer.
