Back Elementary Spring Book Fair

February 2-6, 2015

Important Dates

Book Fair Flyers and Catalogs

We will have these ready to be sent home in Thursday folders on Jan. 22nd!

Jan. 26th - 29th Checkout Procedures (The week prior to the book fair)

Students in 1st-5th grade will get double the amount of books they usually get. Half they may take home that week (the others they keep in a designated place in the classroom). The other half will be books for them to take home the next week (while the previous week's books will then stay at school). That should give them enough books to last them for two weeks. Also, they may use TumbleBooks if they need more to read.


Example:

1st grade at checkout- gets 2 AR books and 1 free choice (3 books) x2 =6 books

(3 go home one week / 3 go home the next week)
