Meet Our All For Books Mascot, Sarsaparilla Joe!

Sassy was made by one of our great volunteers, Katie Strand, for our Book Fair! All For Books is a change collection program that helps our Book Fair earn a little extra that goes to our students to buy books for them through the library. Sarsaparilla Joe will be in the office until the end of the fair so bring in your loose change and help out our school!
