Here ye, here ye…get ready to Enter the Kingdom of Books! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Prairie Winds in October. All profits from the Book Fair go directly to PWES, so enjoy your shopping, knowing you are giving the gift of reading.
The Fair will be operating from October 13th- October 16th during the following times:
Monday: 8:30am – 4:30pm (classroom preview)
Tuesday: 8:30am – 4:30pm (classroom preview)
Wednesday: 8:30am – 8:00pm (P/T Conferences)
Thursday: 8:30am – 8:00pm (P/T Conferences)
We need volunteers to work during the Fair and break down afterwards. This is a fun event, with which to help; so if you can volunteer, please sign up here to choose a time that works for you.
Students will have an opportunity to preview the Book Fair with their class and bring home their “Wish List.” In addition, teachers & specialists have created “Classroom Wish Lists,” to enrich their classroom libraries. During the Fair, you may donate teacher-selected books to their classrooms in your child’s name. “Classroom Wish Lists” will be on display at the Book Fair.
Don’t forget to save your spare change! One of our goals is to put more books into the hands of our students and on the shelves of our classroom libraries through “All for Books.” All of the money donated will go directly to purchasing books for our children! During the week of the Book Fair, we will be offering fun opportunities for “All for Books” donations such as the Lollipop Castle, poster raffles and guessing jars. In addition, Scholastic will match our donations dollar-for-dollar to provide books to non-profit organizations.
