Book Fair

Every October, the HSA runs a Book Fair in the school auditorium. There is always a great selection of books, posters, and other goodies including raffle baskets.   A Book Fair Reading Contest gets the students excited, involved, and READING!  Through the contests, the students are entered to win Book Fair certificates. Each class visits the Book Fair during school hours and parents are welcome to join. There are also after school hours for those parents unable to make it during the school day.

Blessed Sacrament receives 25% of all sales. This is a wonderful and easy way for parents and parishioners to give back to the school.
