Literary Fun Fair

Last night Mulberry School hosted a soggy yet fun Literary Fun Fair! This event capped off our recent Read-a-Thon Fundraiser, which raised over $1,700 for our school to purchase new books. Mulberry students also read a whopping 8,209 minutes!

The Fun Fair activities consisted of food, face painting, glitter tattoos, book-themed games, story time, a book walk, raffle baskets, and more. Thank you to Megan Carter, Melissa Blickem, and all the other parents and volunteers who helped make this evening special and fun for the children!
