Scholastic Book Fair: May 28 - June 3

The Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the first floor of the FES Library from May 28 through June 3. Grades 1-4 will visit the book fair during their regular library time. Fifth grade classes will need to schedule times.


A portion of the proceeds from the book fair goes to the FES Library. We use the money to purchase books and other material for the library.


You may want to refrain from sending home Scholastic book orders during the month of May.
