Book Fair

o Thank you to all the families who came out to the Academy Summer Reading Book Fair at Barnes and Noble in Livingston yesterday, May 16th.

A good time was had by all with tons of books, summer reading titles, special drinks and the company of fellow Academy families!

In the meantime, if you were unable to come or if you forgot something please know that the online book fair goes until Monday 5/21. The Academy receives a % of the sales of ANY item you buy. In addition to summer reading titles, think about gifts for graduation, end of the school year, birthdays and Father’s Day.
