Bowie schools book sale previews Friday

Bowie Elementary hosted a book fair this week. Class 2-D visited the library to browse for books to buy Tuesday morning. Watch for the book fair at the intermediate school next week.

The annual Bowie Schools Scholastic Book Fair will take place next week across the district.
Librarian Patricia Costello said preview day will be on Sept. 22 with the fair open Sept. 25 through noon on Sept. 29. The sale hours will be during the regular school day.
Costello explains the book sale not only provides reading opportunities for children, but also supports the school libraries. During the sale the schools earn credit which can be used to purchase books through Scholastic.
Reading is a vital component in developing student literacy.
Studies show the more you read, the more you understand words and are able to relate to the concept in which they are used. Reading also boosts vocabulary, improves writing and improves your knowledge making it easier to learn more.
