Louise Durham Elementary had a Scholastic Book Fair during parent-teacher conferences. Student's names in each grade level were put in a drawing if their parents attended conferences. A student was drawn from each grade level and they won a big basket of books and supplies from this year's book fair! We are excited to share the love of reading with our book fair winners!!
