This December Cactus Canyon is hosting its first literacy fair. Students, family members, and people from the community are welcome to come and participate in the fair.
The event will be held after school on Dec. 4 from 5-7 p.m. in the school’s courtyard
The literacy fair is an opportunity to have a fun, literature-based night with the whole family. There will be games, activities and books. The activity booths will be based on popular teen novels.
The Raging Readers book club and sponsors Sheryl Anderson and Lisa Smith are in charge of organizing the fair. They will also be receiving help with set up and clean up from Student Council, National Junior Honor Society volunteers, and any other students who plan to help out.
The fair is all booked up with themed activities from different books such as the Hunger Games bean bag toss booth, a cake walk to book theme songs, How To Eat Fried Worms booth, and much more book fun.
Mrs. Smith hopes the Literacy fair will encourage students and their families to read and enjoy stories for all ages.
“I think this will be fun for the whole family and be a great way to spend an evening celebrating Arizona weather and CCJH literacy,” said Mrs. Anderson.
Many of the volunteers at the fair will be from the Raging Readers book club and NJHS students looking for service hours.
“I am volunteering because I like seeing the people enjoy what we put together in a fair,” said eighth grader Ashli Albertsen.
