KATHERINE PTA TO KICK OFF BOOK FAIR WEDNESDAY.

Byline: TERRI BELKIN

Katherine Elementary PTA will open its book fair Wednesday. The fair will run until May 8. Students may purchase books during lunchtime (11:30-1) and after school from 2-3 p.m. Thursday will be a minimum day and the book fair will be open from 1:20 to 2:30.

The book fair will continue until May 8.

Katherine will have their family reading night as their Read- A-Thon continues until the 17th of May.

May 9 will be the last Reading Is Fundamental book giveaway of the year at Katherine. Many new exciting books are being given away and this lets every student have a new reading experience.

On May 7 and 8, buttons will be offered for sale at lunch. These make-it-and-take-it buttons are perfect gifts for Mother's Day, graduation and just for fun! Make one for your friends, or for your teacher (this will be teacher appreciation week).

A variety of work produced by teachers and adaptive PE classes was shown on the big screen to parents and students at the PTSA Sinaloa Fine Arts Showcase Night on April 18. Program chairwoman Edna Brown was busy arranging an entertaining evening for everybody. There was a short PTSA business meeting and elections were held for the 1996-1997 board officers. Afterward, everyone had ice cream sundaes.

Thanks to all of you who made Sinaloa's Care and Share Drive such a big success. Bern Allen's class brought in the most items, 289. Susan Selvaggio's class came in second with 173 items. Many thanks to Mary Warren and the leadership class and also chairwoman, Denise Len.

Hillside Junior High will host a pancake breakfast from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday on campus. The cost will be $2.50 per person with a $12 family maximum. The breakfast, pancakes, bacon or sausage, orange juice and coffee, is hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Simi Valley with all proceeds going toward upgrading the technology classes at Hillside.

The Simi Valley PTA Council will hold its final association meeting Wednesday at the Hollow Hills Cafeteria. We will be honoring our secretaries that work at our 25 schools, with a luncheon, our theme being ``Some Bunny Loves You.''

Five thousand delegates representing PTAs throughout California gathered in Anaheim last week for the 97th Annual PTA Convention. Seventy-four delegates from Simi, nine delegates from Moorpark, and three 12th District delegates attended, taking part in conducting the organization's business, sharing ideas, and learning from conferences with offerings on a wide range of topics.

Opening ceremonies Thursday began with National PTA President-elect Lois Jean White and California State PTA President Carol Ruley. Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin spoke to delegates about the state of education and the importance of class-size reduction.

The keynote speaker, Gary Zelsky, set the tone of the convention with humor and inspiration.

The recognition of California's Teacher of the Year, Javier Gonzalez from Pioneer High School in the Whittier Union High School District, gave real meaning to the word ``inspirational.''
