For the first four days, the book fair was held in the library where students could go during pack time, before school, or after school to browse or buy. On the last day, it was moved to the lunchroom for the parent teacher conference. There were many books bought by students, and the most popular ones seemed to be Margaret Peterson's Found and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Here are brief overviews of these books:

Did you see all the cells around the school a few weeks ago? They were drawn by Mr. Hallams’ biology classes. Each student was given a box of chalk and sent outside to find a square of cement and draw an animal or plant cell.

There were many creative cells drawn. Most students finished their cells in the first 10 minutes of class so they all got creative drawing mustaches and other things on themselves! Some kids were lying on the ground and tracing their silhouettes on the road.
