Book Fair in November!
Our fall Scholastic Book Fair is HERE!!

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help your children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

  • Set the example. Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up
  • with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books children want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your family’s reading habits.

Book Fair Dates: Monday, November 12 th through Friday, November 16 th , 2018
