Book Fair Raises Enough Money to Buy 4,000 Books

Thanks to all who supported the summer school reading program by buying books at the APS City Centre Book Fair.

The book fair sponsored by APS Curriculum and Instruction in partnership with the APS Education Foundation raised enough money to purchase about 4,000 books for a K-8 summer learning program.

Jami Jacobson, executive director of Curriculum and Instruction, said proceeds from the book fair will help provide books for summer school students. Part of the summer learning program is an attendance book incentive. Students receive a free book of their choice on three different Fridays if they come to school every day that week. If students attend all 25 days, they received an extra special book.

“We had a 95 percent summer attendance rate and gave out almost 2,800 books to the five magnet summer schools in the pilot program last summer,” Jacobson said.
