http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/assetuploads/161012_monster_clip_art_12.jpgThank You for a Record Breaking Book Fair!

Thank you to everyone who helped to set up and run our Book Fair, and thank you to all of you who shopped the Book Fair!  Your participation led to the largest Book Fair sales in Nicholson history!  And of course, that means more money raised to help our school!  In addition, it provided an additional $500 in new books for our Media Center! 

Nicholson Students Meet Author, Diane Z. Shore
Once again, Cobb EMC is providing an author visit for Nicholson students as part of their annual Cobb EMC Literacy Week.  On Monday, October 26th, Georgia children's author Diane Z. Shore will be at Nicholson doing presentations for all grade levels.  Diane writes puzzles and games, picture books, chapter books, early readers, historical fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.  She has appeared on Good Day Atlanta and was dubbed "the up-and-coming children's author in Georgia".  We feel very fortunate to have her come to our school.  If your child would like an autographed copy of one of her books, order forms will be sent home during conference week or download a copy below.
