Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. It will even help them get into college! Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills. Talk about books and what your child is reading.
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 kids want to read to 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 child’s reading habits.
Book Fair dates:
During school hours, students will have the opportunity to shop with their Language Arts classes.
We will be open for Family shopping during Parent/Teacher conferences on
Tuesday, November 14 from 3:30-7:00pm
Thursday, November 16 from 3:30-7:00pm.
Before you visit the Book Fair, be sure to download the Book Fairs app to help you find the right books for your child. For more information, visit
If you are unable to attend in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at
. Our online Fair is available until Nov. 16, and items purchased will ship to our school for free after that date. Online sales will still count as part of our profit total.
We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school library.
