Last Friday, the International School of Orange County hosted a Book Fair fundraiser at Barnes & Noble in Orange. It was not only the occasion for our school to celebrate our love for books but also the close-knit community that makes our institution so unique.
The night started with book bingo games which continued throughout the evening, followed by bilingual story time presented by our preschool and pre-kindergarten teachers Souad and Rachel.
Our middle school students also celebrated literature with poem readings in French and English, some even written by the students themselves!
While our school families and Barnes & Noble store visitors enjoyed the fun activities, our welcome table, gift wrapping and craft stations allowed International School of Orange County parents and staff to promote our French immersion school and its mission to the local community. In short, it was a great opportunity to spread the word about the many benefits of bilingual education!
Finally, teachers from all grades were given the chance to display their wish list items of educational toys and books, giving parents the chance to directly contribute to their children’s classrooms.
A percentage of every purchase made during the Book Fair will benefit our school. For those of you who weren’t able to attend the event Friday, you can still participate by shopping online at BN.COM until 12/12/18, and entering Bookfair ID 12440616 at checkout.
A big thank you to our parents, students, and staff for making our 2018 Barnes & Noble Night a success!
