Crestline Elementary moved back to the 1960’s for their book fair theme this year. On Mon., Feb 1, the school held the kickoff with all students being asked to dress in feeling groovy 1960’s clothing. After learning 1960’s dances in PE during January, each grade level of students danced to music from the 60’s in the large gym. Pre-k kicked off the event and each grade level up to fourth grade danced in front of a large crowd of parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, other family members and friends. Other than the dance floor, the space was filled with spectators as the Crestline students danced the jerk, the swim and other dances from that era.

Once the dance was over, the feeling groovy book fair was set up in the small gym with several far out selfie stations. Students were also able to buy books in the small gym.

“This is the first book fair kickoff of this magnitude for Crestline and we are very excited about it,” said Crestline first year librarian Stephanie Roden. Funds from the book fair support the library program that is in the process of expanding its Makerspace, which is a hands-on, student centered area for learning.

There was a whole lot of shakin’ going on Monday evening at Crestline and a whole lot of fun. Hopefully the school made a whole lot of money as well.
