The Book Fair Rocked!


Thanks to everyone who made the Book Fair possible! It could not have been a success without you. We made around $800 to buy new books plus we earned about the same amount in Scholastic books from the Book Fair. Thanks so much to our fabulous Dean Rusk volunteers. You rock!


The Book Fair is Here!



Come to the media center October 13 from 8AM to 3:30 PM or October 14-19 from 8 AM to 6PM and check out our great selection of books. We have the entire Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, including Mockingjay in hard cover for only $17.99. We also have the premier novel in the new Egyptian mythology series by Rick Riordan, The Red Pyramid. For all you Vladimir Tod fans, there’s Twelfth Grade Kills by Heather Brewer. And don’t forget The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, the new Twilight novella from Stephenie Meyer. For all you graphic novel fans we have The Simpsons and Bone by Jeff Smith.
