Scholastic Book Fair
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school November 27-30th! We invite your family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children's books.
You will find hundreds of quality books at our Book Fair with a wide assortment for all reading levels. You can visit the Scholastic website at www.scholastic.ca/bookfairs to read reviews of the featured books. The students will also receive flyers that also feature some of the selected favorites. Students will be given a scheduled time with their class to preview the Book Fair and list their choices and prices on the flyer. They will then bring the flyers home to you so that you can make your decisions on what you will allow them to purchase. Students will then bring their money on student purchasing day, and visit the Book Fair again with their class to make their purchases. If you would rather, you could come to the Book Fair and purchase for your child when you are at the school for Parent-Teacher Conferences/Celebrations of Learning. The flyer also includes a draw ballot that you can fill out for a chance to win books for your home and your child's classroom.
