The Book Fair is Coming!

New Book Fair "Special Event" for Kinder Families

From the Book Fair Crew:
Since many of the Kinder families are new to Washington we thought it might be helpful to know how the week unfolds.

Washington's Scholastic Book Fair takes place during the week of November 17-21, 2014 in the MPR. On either Monday or Tuesday each of the classes will visit the Book Fair. We've asked the teachers to arrange for the Kinder's 4/5th grade reading buddy to help them find books and make a wish list. Students are not allowed to make purchases during their classroom visit. 1st grade-5th graders can shop during morning recess, lunch recess or after school.

On Wednesday November 19 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. we welcome all Kinders and parents to a special shopping hour. We'll serve a small snack and you'll have some quiet time to buy books before the older students descend on the MPR.

Each teacher and the librarians will have a box of books they've selected to enhance their classroom collection. You can take items from the box, purchase them for your child's classroom and we'll give you a sticker to put on the inside cover where you can write your child's name so that your teacher knows who has gifted the book.

The opening and closing times vary from day to day and you are welcome to shop at any time. Or better yet, volunteer to help at the Book Fair and get the inside scoop on which books interest students. Sign up for a time that is convenient for you at
