Book Fair

What is the Book Fair?

An amazing selection of books is headed our way! In the fall and in the spring, our school library turns into a book store for one week where kids, parents, and community members can purchase book of all kinds. At our school Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents.

PTA Sponsored

It is both a fundraiser and a PTA program to encourage young students to grow a love for reading.  PTA sponsors the book fair and all profits will go to the library to purchase more books.  Items are offered through Scholastic, http://www.scholastic.com, who sells books additionally through the monthly Scholastic book order magazine that you might be getting in your child’s Thursday folders or through your teachers.

 

Reading for the Family

We also hold Family Events where the whole family can join in the fun. Check out the big dreams that can be realized through family reading: http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/family

One for me, one for my classroom

You can contribute books to your child’s classroom library.  The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading.

  • Ask our school librarian what books she would to add to our school collection. Often you can find the school wishlist on the online book fair website at scholastic.com. https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/homepage.do?method=homepage&url=santiagohills
  • Look for our teacher classroom book wishlist board in the library throughout the week. Teachers fill out book wishlist slips with the title and author of the book they would love to add to their collection, so you can easily pick it for them and gift it to the class. Every teacher has their own wishlist holder on this board.

See you at the Book Fair!
