The Book Fit Challenge

Thank you Arcado families for a great start to the Book Fit Challenge! Here at school we have been focusing on “Reading for the FUN of it” as well as celebrating students who are getting pledges from family and friends. Pledges are coming in from across the country and WORLD. That is AWESOME!!!

We plan to use the profits from this fundraiser this school year by purchasing new furniture for the Media Center. Below are some examples of the type of furniture we are going to purchase. This is VERY exciting as we have never updated our Media Center!!!!

Reading Rocks Night is scheduled for Monday, May 11. We are planning to host a grand opening walk through of the new Media Center that night.

If fundraising is not something you are interested in, you can make a monetary donation to the Arcado PTA for the Media Center (checks made payable to Arcado PTA). We appreciate your support no matter how it comes to us. We are just so excited!!

A big thank you to these teachers for their organization and participation as spelling bee officials: Ms. Fran Cone, Ms. Lydia Dartt, Ms. Theresa Consorti, Ms. Kellie Hill, Ms. Evelyn Schneider & Ms. Susie Fancher.
