Book Fair

Our Scholastic book fairs are among our biggest fundraisers and are held twice a year,

in the fall and spring. Book-fair proceeds benefit our library, help teachers purchase supplies and help fund field trips and other school programs. ​​

The fall 2022 book fair will be held Oct. 17 to 21. 

Volunteer

We need volunteers throughout the week of book fair, as well as for set up and take down. To learn more or join our committee, contact us at volunteers@rispto.org

Family Night and the Ice-Cream Social

We usually host family night and an ice-cream social one evening during book fair. This is a great way for parents, grandparents and caregivers to browse the fair.

eWallet

We offer eWallet, a secure alternative to sending cash with your child. It's quick and easy to register online and set a spending limit. After the book fair, any unused funds will be transferred to a Scholastic gift card, which can be used for online purchases or to fund eWallet for future book fairs.​ To check if you have a gift card balance from a previous eWallet, log in to your Scholastic account and select "gift cards" in the settings section. 

All for Books and Coin Wars

We also collect money to provide books to children who could not otherwise afford them through "All for Books." Shoppers are encouraged to "round up" their purchases for All for Books, and classrooms participate in Coin Wars. The class that collects the most loose change wins a pizza party, and Scholastic matches our donations, hoping us get more books in children's hands. 

Teacher Wish Lists

Teachers create "wish list" boxes filled with books they would like for their classroom libraries. Please browse the boxes and consider purchasing a book for your child's teacher.
