Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way. Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them on their journey to becoming lifelong readers. In addition to encouraging students to be great readers—every purchase you make at the Book Fair benefits our school.
Here’s what you need to know about the big event, which will take place:
Friday, October 20th through Friday, October 27th from 8:00 AM to 3:15 PM each day. Wednesday the 25th there will be a special night event where you can shop the book fair from 6:00-7:30 PM
Say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy.
If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Book Fair online. All orders shipdirectly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school.
