2019 Scholastic Book Fair
As part of our commitment to promote reading, our Scholastic Book Fair is held during Education Week each year. Children in all grades are offered the chance to purchase many great titles for their personal enjoyment.
The Book Fair is a great fundraiser for our school library, with a percentage of the proceeds going towards the purchase of new books to enrich your children's education. Parents are also offered the opportunity to donate a book to the library, either in their child's name or in their family's name.
More books means more choice, which means kids get to read the books they want to read. The right book can ignite a passion for reading, so we encourage families to work together to create a reading culture at home.
