Everyone's Invited to Our Scholastic Book Fair!


Dear Parents, Grandparents and Guardians,

Our Scho
lastic Book Fair is scheduled for NEXT WEEK, March 23-27 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. (including our half-days).

We invite you to our school to share in this celebrat
ion of books and reading. Not only does the Book Fair help raise funds to purchase essential classroom and library resources, it encourages reading among our students.

As our children grow it is so important to keep books in their lives. Students who remain readers as they grow are more likely to be lifelong learners. Readers develop larger vocabularies, a greater knowledge of the world, and higher academic achievement. In fact, studies indicate that being a reader is more predictive of success than intelligence, economic background, or gender.

Our Book Fair provides a wide variety of books specifically selected to appeal to elementary school interests. Students will discover books that are entertaining, inspirational, and a resource for dealing with emerging emotions. All are invited to come browse and find books that can help your child stay
connected with reading!

Those of you with young children are invited to join us for our BOOKS AND COOKIES SOCIAL- a special story time designed to get them excited about reading! Join us for our social on Wednesday after school - from 12:30 to 1 :30!

At our Fair, we will also have a CLASSROOM WISH LIST board on display for anyone interested in helping our teachers add more books to their classroom library shelves. Students and families can purchase one or more of these books for their classroom or make a donation for their teacher to purchase classroom books!

We'll also be collecting loose change and donations for our One for Books Program - which helps us buy more books for school and helps Scholastic buy books for children in need!

VOLUNTEERS ARE INVITED TO WORK A FEW HOURS DURING THE FAIR TO HELP STUDENTS FIND AND SELECT THEIR BOOKS. OR, COME HELP US SET UP OR BREAK DOWN THE FAIR! FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT CHERYL DORE AT 267-255-1039.

If you are not able to attend the Fair in person, we encourage you to discuss the Book Fair with your child to determine what books he or she may want to add to their personal collection. You may use the attached Scholastic Books flier or visit our BOOKFAIR WEBSITE: http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/cookwiss .

Sincerely,

Mrs. Anna Jenkins
