SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR – FEBRUARY 21, 22, & 23 2018
Dear Parents & Guardians,
The Scholastic Book Fair arrives at St. Paul School next week! The Book Fair will be open in the library all day Wednesday and Thursday. It will also be open until 10:30 a.m. on Friday.
We invite your entire family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children’s books. Did you know that for every $10 you spend at the Fair up to $6 goes directly back to our school? Your support of this vital literary fundraiser is key to our obtaining new books and resources for our library and classrooms.
The children will be able to preview the great selection of books on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Students may bring cash or cheque made payable to St. Paul School to purchase books at any time during the book fair. If we run out of any books, the back orders will be delivered by the following Wednesday.
Once again, the students will have the opportunity to win a free book. We will have a draw for each class when they come to preview the books on Wednesday. To enter the draw, the student must read a book of his or her choice and complete a Reading Record Sheet obtainable from their teacher. They may read aloud, read silently, or listen and participate in a shared story time. A parent or teacher’s signature will validate the sheet, and, the more the students read, the better their chance of winning that free book!
Books inspire young minds and give children educational advantages. A successful book fair will not only help raise important funds for the library but will also help your child discover the rich rewards of reading.
Happy reading! We look forward to seeing you at the Book Fair.
Mrs. Roxanne Koop
