It's the MQP All for Books Arctic Adventure Coin Challenge!
It will be held Monday Nov 4th - Thursday Nov 7th, as a pre-cursor to the Scholastic Book Fair which starts on Nov 10th. Each day, students are invited to bring in specific coins, and the winning classroom with the highest value of coins will win a popcorn party! Jars will be located in each classroom to collect coins every day. Thursday, we will be collecting quarters!
All money collected will be used to purchase NEW books at the MQP Scholastic Book Fair Nov 10th - 14th. These books will then be donated to The Little Bit Foundation. This great organization partners with about 42 local schools, primarily in the Riverview Gardens District, and offers two annual Book Fairs and a Books and Buddies Program to help build home libraries for hundreds of deserving local kids in need. Also, Scholastic will MATCH every All For Books donation we make with one of their own, distributing books to several organizations including the National Center for Families Learning.
