Book Fair

The Santa Margarita Book Fair sold $6, 938.61 during the time it was open.  Thank you all so much for your support. As promised, the principal now has three promises to keep. 1. He must wear a costume, 2. He will have a pie in the face, and 3. both he and Ms. Dudley will compete in an egg challenge. (The egg challenge is when there are 12 eggs in a carton. Six are hard boiled and six are raw. You reach in and select one egg to crack on the top of your head. The challenge continues until all eggs have been used.) The egg challenge will happen at the next assembly so all students can watch.
