Wander into an Enchanted Forest Book Fair

Our Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon. The Book Fair will run the week of November 26-29, 2018. Our evening Family Event will take place on Thursday, November 29 at the same time as our Student Led Conferences. We hope you or your child's grandparents will be able to join us! Wander into our Enchanted Library Learning Commons to visit the fair, shop for gifts, enter to win prizes, and enjoy an evening together with friends, family and neighbors. All purchases at the Book Fair benefit our school!

When you visit, please consider donating a book to your child's classroom library. Children's reading interests are always changing and teachers welcome updated classroom libraries. Just look for the Teacher Classroom Wish List display at the fair. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Mrs. Karin Koop
