use the fields for their activities on a more consistent basis.

Teacher Wish Bins

Classroom libraries play a key role in providing access to books and promoting literacy. Help your child’s teacher build a fun and diverse classroom library buy shopping the Teacher Wish Bins at the book fair—OR purchase a gift certificate for the special teachers in your child’s life!

Coins for Classroom Libraries

When shopping at the book fair, parents and students will have the option to donate their change to purchase books for Powell classroom libraries! Look for the coin collection box at the cashier counter. Last spring, we collected enough change to buy 1 book for every homeroom teacher. Our goal this year is 2 books for every classroom! Scholastic will match your donations for a national organization that distributes book to kids in need.

Introducing eWallet

Let your child shop the Fair cash-free with our NEW digital payment option. Learn more on the book fair webpage.

Family Night, October 24, 5pm to 7pm

The book fair is also online!

Shop from home and share the link with family and friends who aren't local but might want to buy something for your child.
