FMS students set to raise money at Barnes and Noble

"They're really going big," Garaghty said.

"We are so proud to have our students participating in such a unique learning experience," said Lynne Wells, middle school instructional administrator for English language arts, reading, and social studies. "The extravaganza will provide a platform for the children to share their research, writing, and voices with a real-world audience."

Geraghty said the fundraising program is designed specifically for schools K-12, and is a great resource for those that take advantage of it.

"We provide them with all the promotional material, she said.

If FMS can help raise up to $1,999, it will receive 10 percent the proceeds.

Between $2,000 and $9,999, it receives 15 percent, and more than $10,000 yields a 20 percent donation.

If the school chooses to use the money to purchase books through Barnes and Nobles, an additional 5 percent is added to each interval, Geraghty said.

The proceeds are going to be used to help bring author to speak at the middle school, according to information provided by the district.

"The students are truly excited and motivated to step out and connect with the greater community," Wells said.
