SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
October 15th - 18th, 2018
Online store info:
The online fair is open October 10 - 23rd and contains a larger selection of books than our physical fair. (Posters, pencils, and other non book items are only available at the physical fair) This is a fun way for extended family to help support our school and surprise their Scholls Height's family member with a book from their wish list!
No shipping charges! All of the items purchased at our online fair will be delivered to the school once the online fair has closed, then sent home with the student.
Please write the student's name and teacher at checkout.
If the book is a surprise, make sure to write so in the notes during checkout with contact information of who will be picking up the books.
How to help Info:
The Book Fair is run by your help! We need you! And to thank you for your help, we will give you $5 Scholastic Dollars towards your purchase (no minimum) per hour shift that you fill!
As with most all activities at the school, to help out you need to have passed a background check. Click the appropriate link below in the footer of this page to do so if you have not already done so in the past.
A lot of parents seem to enjoy helping when their child's class comes through the book fair for a walk through and wish list making. We will post those times on www.myvolunteerpage.com as soon as it they are made available. Also, consider filling a shift before or after your parent teacher conference! Bring home a prize for your child from the book fair, at a discount!
We need your help to: work the registers, keep the area tidy & organized, and during school hours to help children with their wishlists (especially the younger grades who are still learning to read and write).
There are always instructions near the register for questions, and on shift change helpers traditionally give a quick run through on how to work the register. The chairs are also available to help via texting or calling. Their names and numbers will be left near the register.
Fall Book Fair:
This is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right to the school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair from October 15th - 18th and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
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 Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books at the fair.
Book Fair Hours:
Mon 10/15 8:15am to 4pm
Tues 10/16 8:15am to 4pm
Wed 10/17 8:15am to 7pm
Thur 10/18 8:15am to 7pm
The online fair is open from Oct 10th - 23rd.
Teacher Wish Lists:
While you are at the Fair you can select a book for your child's classroom. Each teacher has filled a basket with books they would like for their classroom library.
Donate your change to "All For Books":
The All for Books™ program created by Scholastic Book Fairs® takes small donations of change and uses it to purchase books for the school library, classrooms and for children who can’t afford them. Donations can be made in the form of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters or dollars and can be added to your credit card purchase purchase if desired.
Scholastic Book Fairs will match the All for Books contributions through The Scholastic Possible Fund with a donation of up to $1 million in books to organizations that help children in need, such as the Kids In Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.
As usual, we will be raffling off the display posters (no purchase necessary), and we will have special raffles for those who make purchases!
Our Goal for this fair is to sell 750 books! That will put one or more new books in the hands of each student at Scholls Heights Elementary.
Can children buy books themselves during school?
Yes! Children may make purchases at the book fair during school Mon-Wed! Every class walks through to make a wish list on these days. Students also have the opportunity to get a pass from their teacher or come in during recess to make purchases. We do take and have experience with Ziplocs full of coins from piggy banks!
