District Book Fair Raises $3,220 for Summer Learning Programs

The money will be used to buy books for students with weekly perfect attendance.

APS employees bought lots of books during the second annual book fair hosted by Curriculum and Instruction and the APS Education Foundation. As a result, summer learning programs will have more than $3,200 to buy books for students with weekly perfect attendance.

All proceeds from the fair go to supplement the K-5 Summer Learning Adventure, a 25-day program that seeks to raise students’ reading comprehension and math fluency.

Money raised will go specifically to the attendance incentive to provide students with perfect attendance for the week a book of their choice. Those who have perfect attendance during the entire program also receive a special book, such as a sticker book, pop-up book or mini-science kit.

With funds from last year’s book fair, the program increased attendance to nearly 6,000 students, with 95 percent having perfect attendance. Next year’s Summer Learning Adventure will be held June 17 to July 23 and at schools on an alternative calendar from June 3-July 9.
