Our fall book fair will be held Oct. 21 to 25. Family night and the
ice-cream social will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24.
If you can't make it to the book fair in person, you can shop online beginning Oct. 16. Shipping is free, and books will be delivered to your child's classroom.
This year, we are offering 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, unused funds will be credited back to the cardholder. You can learn more and sign up here.
Book-fair proceeds benefit our library, help teachers purchase supplies and help fund field trips and other school programs.
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.
Be sure to check out teachers' "wish list" boxes, and consider purchasing a book for their classroom libraries.
