Pershing Book Fair - Coming Soon!

Dear Pershing Families:

We are working hard to keep our students reading and raise critical funds for our school library with our Scholastic Online-Only Book Fair from October 19th to November 1st.

The Fair will connect your kids to notable books and inspiring characters — helping them become lifelong readers. And you’ll love the new option to shop for Book Fair exclusives — directly from the interactive book list. Plus, enjoy these special online shopping features:

· Access to over 6,000 products

· All orders ship direct to home

· FREE shipping on book-only orders over $25

· All purchases support our school library and earn 25% in rewards

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

Thank you for continuing to support our school library!

Happy reading,

Mrs. Williams
