Feelin' Groovy Book Fair

Dear Patriot Parents and Families,

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help
children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

-Set the example. Let children see you read.

-Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with
changing tastes and reading skills.
-Support our school’s Scholastic Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

The Feelin’ Groovy Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read to school. It’s a
wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits. To help your child find the best books, he or she will visit the Book Fair during class time. Students will be allowed to purchase books during their shopping visit, but we also encourage you to look over the attached Book List with your child. If you
cannot attend, you may use the Book List order form and send it back to school with your child.
(Please remember to write checks to BPES and include money for tax-8.25%.)

During the Book Fair, we also invite you to help build our classroom libraries by purchasing books and

donate that many books to one of their charities (Collection=$100 Scholastic donates 100 books).

Before you visit the Book Fair, be sure to download the Book Fairs app to help you find the right books for your child. For more information, visit: scholastic.com/apps/bookfairs. If you are unable to attend the fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at scholastic.com/fair. Our online fair is available from
February 13-26. For more information about our book fair or to order from the online fair, check out our book fair website at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/betteperotes.

Thank you for encouraging your child to read. Remember all purchases benefit our students and the BPE
Library. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the Feelin’ Groovy Book Fair!

Sincerely,

Amy Pratt, BPES Librarian & Erin Stansberger, PTA Book Fair Chairperson
