Book Fair

Why a Book Fair?

from the Librarian

Education experts confirm what you already know: Reading for fun has a profound impact on our children. It not only introduces them to facts, fables, and fun, but also can increase math scores, develop thinking ability, and improve vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation skills. To encourage reading, our school is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair November 7-10, 2016. I hope you will attend.

Everyone in the family will find wonderful books and other exciting products at the fair. You'll see what I mean when you review your child's Highlights Book List, which will be sent home the week before the Fair. Watch for it! All purchases benefit our school library.

We're also building classroom libraries through the Fair. You can purchase any book on a teacher's posted "Classroom Wish List" and donate it to the Classroom to enrich students for years to come.
