What: Scholastic Book Fair
When: Oct 14th-18th with extended hours on Wednesday, 10/16
Where: Large Group Room
Who: Each child will visit the Book Fair with his or her class. Book purchases can be made at that time or any other time the Fair is open.
What It Is
The Book Fair is an annual PTO fundraiser held in the Large Group Room in Mid-October. We work with Scholastic Books to provide an array of books that appeal to all readers. All purchases are completely voluntary and proceeds from the Book Fair benefit the New Eagle PTO and its various functions in support of our school.
How It Works
This book fair is “cash and carry”. Each child will visit the Book Fair with his or her class. Book purchases can be made at that time or any other time when the Fair is open. If your child will be making purchases, please send enough money for any books plus 6% tax! As in past years, we will also be selling gift certificates for our teachers at the Fair. These must be used by the teachers during the Fair, and are always greatly appreciated. Gift certificates are a nice way to say thank you to our teachers for the great job they are doing, and to help update and improve their classroom libraries. Class visit times will be communicated the week before the Fair.
Annual Spirit Day Challenge
Got some spare change at home? Please consider donating it to the All for Books program at the Fair through our Annual Spirit Day Challenge. The children will have the opportunity to vote for the theme of the November Spirit Day. Contributions will result in more books for our library, count towards our Book Fair profit and are matched by Scholastic for book donations to two national charities.
