Book Fair Information

Get Ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger readers. AND -as always- every book they buy earns rewards for our school.

Here’s what you need to know about the Fair…….

This year we will say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet- your child’s digital payment account. Before the fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Retail tax (10%) will be added to all transactions.

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair.  All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25.00. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:

Teachers have created an eWallet of their own! Help support a classroom by donating to one of the eWallets linked here.:
