Annual Scholastic Book Fair - November 2nd - November 10th

All scholastic dollar profits earned from the fair go directly back to our school and put new books into the hands of our students at TES and into their classroom and school libraries. Profits are also used to purchase books for special events at TES such as our Community Reader Day, Global Read Alouds, MCBA, new classroom read-alouds, and our yearly author visits.
