Errol Hassell Family News- November 6, 2020


Dear Parents and Families:

The Scholastic Book Fair is back! While the Fair will be exclusively held online this year, we still plan on making it a fun and joyous experience for our kids. Features include:

Errol Hassell’s own Online Store, with a large selection of titles, at the right price points

A Virtual Fair so you and your kids can experience the magic of the school shopping experience. Browse titles by grade, meet popular authors, and discover the comfort and joy of our Fair (preview titles here)

Every dollar you spend will benefit our school directly (25% back in rewards!)

Save these dates and view our school’s Fair site:
Fair Dates:​ November 9th – November 22nd

We can’t wait to “see” you at the Fair!
