Don’t Miss the CBES Book Fair This Week

Carolina Beach Elementary School is now holding their Winter Book Fair. The fair will run though Friday, December 6th giving students and their families to fill their home libraries with new favorites and old classics. Attendees can purchase books for teachers through the Classroom Wish List and One for Books programs.  This allows teachers the opportunity to incorporate selected titles into the everyday environment for the children.  If you would like to help with this project, please contact the school to make a donation. The Book Fair will be open through Thursday from 7:45am until 3:00pm and Friday from 7:45am until Noon. Students will have an opportunity to bring someone special to breakfast on Thursday, check your child’s backpack for details.
This year St Paul’s United Methodist Church has partnered with our school to bring a literacy program to the students called A Book on Every Bed which was initiated by Amy Dickinson of the “Ask Amy” newspaper column. This program is a literacy initiative to have every child wake up on Christmas morning with a wrapped book on their bed, hence the first present that they receive on Christmas morning.  For more information on the program contact the school’s librarian Ms Woodard at 910-458-4340 x 203.
