Scholastic Book Fair - September 29 - October 3, 2014

During these days you may send money for your child to visit the bookfair.

Visit SMNE's Scholastic Book Fair Home page at or by clicking "SMNE Bookfair" below.......

(Note: I have just noticed that when you go to the site OR click on the bookfair, it says that it has ended. This one HAS NOT ended... I think it is only because the LAST one we had has ended and THIS one has NOT actually begun yet...)
