The Dream Big Student Book Store has extended their fundraiser into March.   The MBASP chose to conduct the book store to allow the MBASP fifth grade students to become entrepreneurs and to raise money for their trip to Vermont on April 22. Having the book store allows the MBASP fifth grade students to be leaders with adult supervision. The students are inspired with this idea and excited to move forward.


Open for the month of March and possibly April.

We are open every week and our low price books are $5.00 and under.
