Book Fair

The Hilton Book Fair was a great success! Thank you to Ms. Lauer and our volunteers for helping with the event each day. Your generosity in purchasing books for our teachers was overwhelming. Their book boxes were packed, which brought lots of smiles. Your children love giving, and what can be better than giving a book to be enjoyed by children for years to come. We hope that our entire staff knows how much they are valued and enjoy this gift of reading.
