SKIPPY JON JONES ACTORS -- The Lyndon Town School Scholastic Book Fair has been happening twice a year for over 20 years, thanks to the LTS Parents and Teachers Together group. Students, many armed with clipboards, browse the hundreds of books and write down their wish list, then budget their money to get as many books as possible. Everyone who wants a book can get one, thanks to a special fund set up by LTS. Proceeds from the book fair go directly back into the community: the Monster Mash, New Year's Day Ice-Skating and two spaghetti dinners are all free and made possible thanks to book sales. This year's popular book was the newest in the Skippy Jon Jones series, about a bi-lingual Siamese cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua super hero. Above, first-grade students listened to the book in Spanish class, complete with Spanish accents, and then made their own Skippy Jon Jones masks.
