*2018 Book Fair & Art Show

The annual Scholastic ​Book Fair​ and Art Show​ ​was held at Valle Catholic from ​April 23 – April 27 in the Valle Gym. Art completed under the supervision of Art teacher, Mr. William Palmer, was on display during the week.

​The entire week was filled with ​fun activities​ that coincided with the Book Fair and Art Show.​ “Paws for Reading” was the theme of this year’s fair.








Teachers complete​d​ “Wish Lists”​ (dog house)​ to help build their classroom libraries. ​Families​ ​had the opportunity to​ donate​​ a book on his/her teacher’s list to the classroom. Newly added books can spark a student’s interest in reading, and the more a child chooses to read the better he/she will get.

The ​crowd-pleasing​ ​BRAG (Books, Reading and Grandparents) event​ began​ with Mass​ followed by treats​ and Book Fair​ shopping​/Art Show viewing.

A Love Our Libraries coin drive is running April 23 – May 4, “Reading is a SPLASH!” The grade level that collects the most coins gets to compete in water relay races against Mrs. Metzger and her team of faculty and staff. Mrs. Metzger will also treat the students in the winning grade level to Kona Ice snow cones!

The week included poster raffle​s​, guessing games, “Doggie Trivia” held over the PA with all classrooms participating. Mrs. Amy Wood’s Kindergartners claimed the Grand Prize!

Another fun event was that of the Golden Tickets.

Every time a teacher caught a student reading without prompting, that child received a Golden Ticket which went into a drawing for a “Doggie Bag” filled with goodies.

Some students were even luckier to receive Golden Tickets which had Free Kona Ice or Sweet Treat from Mrs. Metzger written on the reverse side of the ticket.

An always popular event during Book Fair & Art Show Week is the Family Literacy Night. This event is held to celebrate our students and their love for reading. This year’s version took place on Monday, April 23rd.

The night began with prayer and welcome in the Valle Cafeteria then families were free to engage in a variety of activities throughout New Valle which centered around animals.

Mrs. Joggerst added to the fun with her Kona Ice Mini and because of Mrs. J’s generosity, we raised $50 for new books! Kona Ice also donated $30 worth of coupons for some of the golden tickets for the students to earn as a reward for reading. Kona Ice loves being a Warrior.

The Valle Catholic faculty and staff would like to thank all those who worked so hard to coordinate this annual event which adds new books in a variety of genres to our classroom and school libraries. It also puts books in kids’ hands to keep them reading over the summer vacation.
