Book Fair Fun
Ohana night showcases book fair.
Student assistant managers Jonathan Clemente and Courtney Keanini spent several hours before school, during lunch, and after school preparing for the event. Clemente described the experience as a lot of hard work.
Clemente said he learned about reordering, taking inventory, keeping track of money, and making sure that everything went smoothly when other students were running the cash register.
This is the second year that Yonemura and Mokuau partnered to run the Book Fair. “This is a great partnership,” Mokuau said.
Yonemura said she likes it because “its real life, it’s not just in the classroom.” Her business class students learn about sales, marketing, and building customer service skills, something she said will help prepare them for the future. The students also sent out business letters asking for donations for the event.
A big Mahalo goes out to all of the businesses and families who supported the book fair.
The book fair is open 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and will run through March 12.
Proceeds from the Book Fair will help to fund activities for library students and future book purchases for the library. If you are interested in sponsoring library activities or donating money for books contact Diane Mokuau at 808-567-6950.
