For elementary school students, the annual book fair is an exciting event.
Once again this year, though, the Claremore High School FFA students made it even more exciting for the first grade students at Roosa Elementary.
CHS teacher, and FFA advisor, Matt Boyer said his students raised over $200 to buy books for the students.
“We collect aluminum cans throughout the year and we cash that money in and us it to buy their books. We try to do this every year, if we have the ability to, or the funds able to do that,” Boyer said. “The book fair for the elementary school is the greatest thing ever, they get so excited. We love being part of it.”
He said this is their third year to be involved.
“We take them to the book fair, allow them to pick out a book of their choice so each student got $5 to purchase a book of their choice,” he said. “Then they went out into the hallway and read that book together. I think my students loved it just as much as the grade school students did.”
