Scholastic Book Fair Coming Soon

posted Oct 25, 2018, 3:03 PM by Leah Ashford   [ updated Oct 25, 2018, 7:38 PM ]

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school. The entire community is invited to participate by purchasing children’s books. Did you know that for every $10 you spend at the Book Fair, up to $6 in product goes directly back to our school? Your support of this event results in books going directly into your child's classroom through Teacher wishlists and also to our library and school. As a result of last year's Book Fair over 200 books were given to the school from Teachers wish lists and the Library wish list. Your participation in the Book Fair makes a difference! 

 Guidelines:

  • Monday November 5th: The children may come through the library with their Teacher to look at the books and create a wish list. The wish list does go home for parents to review, however at the Monday Whole School Meeting we will explain to students that creating a wish list does not mean that the books will necessarily be purchased.
  • Tuesday, November 6th, Wednesday, November 7th & Thursday, November 8th: If you would like to purchase any of the wishlist books, please come in person or send payment with your child. Please talk to your child about the responsibilities that come with carrying cash to school. 

 

Parents are encouraged to stop in anytime and browse through the book selection – lots of great ideas for Christmas!  Our Book Fair accepts cash, salt spring dollars, cheques and credit cards.


VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO RUN THIS EVENT. www.volunteersignup.org/REB4Y  AN EMAIL WAS SENT WITH A SCHEDULE BUT WE ARE FLEXIBLE AND APPRECIATE ANY TIME YOU CAN VOLUNTEER EVEN IF YOU DROP IN.  THANK YOU TO OUR PARENT FAIR "CHAIRPERSON" ALISHA RENAUD FOR THE MANY HOURS SHE HAS CONTRIBUTED.
