Imagine Schools West Gilbert middle school students take part in the Scholastic Student Book Crew. The Student Book Crew is a team of students who help plan, promote, and run the book fair. Students help with other students who are shopping at the book fair. They help them pick out books and they know many of the current, popular books. They also have great ideas with ways to attract the entire school community to the Book Fair.
The student crew also helps make the staff liaison’s workload easier and divides up the responsibilities. It is a great way to build leadership and life skills all while helping the school raise funds.
