The Ruprecht Organization, owners of Branson area McDonald’s restaurants, donated $1,877.23 to PTO to purchase books for students through its fall Book Fair. The donation supports students and good reading habits at all elementary schools. Accepting the donation on behalf of Buchanan Elementary was Jared Howerton, assistant principal, April Hawkins, principal, and Lori Collette, librarian.
Scholastic Book Fairs are hosted by PTO twice each school year. The Fairs provide students with opportunities to purchase books on their particular reading level and provide schools with books and equipment for the libraries. We are grateful to the Ruprecht Organization for its support of our students and reading.
