The library at Melissa Ridge Intermediate and Melissa Middle School is gearing up for their annual Sleigh Bells Book Fair, scheduled from Monday, Nov. 28 through Friday, Dec. 2. This year as a part of Family Night, the library invites students and their families to “Read Under the Stars” after stopping by the book fair. On Family Night, the book fair will run from 4:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Read Under the Stars comes to Cardinal Stadium on Tuesday, Nov 29. Families can come and go between 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The only requirements to enter are a book and a flashlight. Families are invited to bring their books, blankets, and sleeping bags as they read on the field under the Melissa stars. Each person will receive a free glow-in-the-dark bracelet, and families who enter will receive a ticket for a chance to win a basket of books.
Coaches and teachers will be monitoring the gate and the field. No food or drinks will be allowed on the field and must be discarded at the gate. Reading will take place on the field area only.
We look forward to seeing you and your families under the stars!
