Twice a year we host a Scholastic Book Fair. Book fairs provide easy access to a wide assortment of books, give kids a choice in what inspires them to read more, and involve family, which demonstrates to kids that reading is important. The fair also helps us purchase books for the school library and classroom libraries at discounted prices. Books are usually for sale during lunch and after school.

Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.

Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through film production, dance choreography, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.
