Dear Parents and Families,

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school from Nov. 21-24! What better way to promote reading to our students than by supporting this important literary event?

We invite your entire family to participate by purchasing the latest and greatest in children’s books. Your support of this vital literary event is a key part of helping us obtain new books and resources for our library and classrooms.

 You’ll find hundreds of quality books at our Book Fair with a wide assortment for all reading levels. Visit the Scholastic Book Fairs website at www.scholastic.ca/bookfairs to get more detailed information about these books. You can also watch book trailers and author videos with your child on the BookTube page.

Your child will be receiving a Book Fair flyer in the next few days. The flyer provides a preview of only a FEW of the many books available to purchase at our Fair. The flyer also contains a special ballot that parents or students can deposit in a ballot box in the library during the Book Fair. You could win $50 in books – $25 for your family PLUS $25 for your child’s classroom! The draw will take place Thurs. Nov. 23 around 8:00 pm.

 

  • All classes will have an opportunity to visit the book fair on Tues. Nov. 21 and Wed. Nov. 22 during the day to preview the selection. They may fill out a “wish list” of the books that interest them for you to see and may also purchase at this time if they have money. ***The book fair will remain open during Parent-Teacher interviews on Thurs. Nov. 23 from 4:00-8:00 and Fri. Nov. 24 until noon.

 

Don’t forget to mark the Book Fair dates on your calendar! We look forward to seeing you and thank you, in advance, for supporting this great literary event. Thank you for believing in books and the impact of reading on your child’s future.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. R. Tenenbaum

Teacher-Librarian and Book Fair Chairperson
