The Beecher Road School PTO hosted the year’s second book fair in early April. The book fair’s theme was Wizard of Oz, which coincided with the school’s student performance of the Wizard of Oz play.
“One of our main goals at Beecher Road School is to foster a life-long love of learning,” said Superintendent Dr. Guy Stella. “The PTO does a great job of supporting our goal through wonderful events like the biannual book fair.”
The book fair lasts four days and includes one family night, explained fair co-chair Andrea Fleischman. During family night the Student Council hosted a bake sale and also sold chicken wings and macaroni and cheese. All profits from the sale are going to support Victor, a child in Bolivia via Save the Children. Students in Spanish class each wrote a letter to Victor in Spanish.
Student Council members took turn working the bake sale table. Alessandro Rivera, a sixth grade student, said he joined the Student Council because he likes to help the community.
“I am always so impressed by the creativity and enthusiasm that goes into events at Beecher Road School and the book fair is no exception,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar who visited the Fair’s Family Night.
