The Book Fair is Coming!

Dear Parents and Families:

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school! What better way to promote reading to our students than by supporting this important literary event.

We invite your entire family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children’s books. Did you know that for every $10 you spend at the book fair, up to $6 comes directly back to our school? Your support of this vital literary event is key to helping us obtain new books and resources for our library and classrooms.

You will find hundreds of quality books at our Book Fair with a wide assortment for all reading levels. A Book Fair flyer has been sent home that provides a preview of only a FEW of the many books available to purchase at our Book Fair.

The flyer also contains a special Family Event Draw ballot that parents can deposit during our Family Event. You could win $50 in books – $25 for your family PLUS $25 for your child’s classroom!

Don’t forget to mark the Book Fair dates on your calendar! We look forward to seeing you during our Scholastic Book Fair. Thank you for believing in books and the importance reading has on your child’s future and for supporting this great literary fundraiser.
