BOOK FAIR

November 7th - 11th, 2022

 

The annual Scholastic book fair is November 7th - 11th. Our theme this year is “Camp Out with a Good Book.” We have a huge selection of children’s titles at very affordable prices.

Students will have an opportunity to shop with their classes, and we hope parents and family members will join us at our Family Night on November 9th from 4-7pm. This a great opportunity to get a head start on some holiday shopping!

 

CLASS SHOPPING + e-WALLET

There are four ways to shop the Book Fair:

1. Create an eWallet for your student prior to the day your student's class will shop the Book Fair. We strongly encourage and request that parents use eWallets instead of sending cash; the balances never expire and can be used by you at any time. Remember to add several extra dollars on top of the book prices to account for tax. 

2. Send cash in a baggie or envelope (labeled with the student's name and teacher) on the day your student's class is shopping the Book Fair. The class schedule is available here. Remember to account for tax on top of the prices of the books. 

3. Shop through the online store between November 7th-20th. Note there is free shipping for book purchases over $25. 

4. Attend Family Night on WednesdayNovember 9th from 4:00-7:00pm. Adults may visit in-person with their students during our Family Night. Please see below for additional details.

There will be an assortment of non-book items at the book fair. Please note that while we encourage students to purchase books, we are not responsible for the choices they make. If you would like your child to only purchase books, please discuss this with them prior to their visit, or plan on attending the book fair during your child's visit so that you can monitor their choices.

Donate to your Teacher's classroom library: 

1. Purchase a book (or more!) from your teacher's Wish List at the Book Fair when you visit. 

2. Contribute to your teacher's eWallet. Please make these donations prior to Wednesday, November 9th. Links to the teachers' eWallets are available here

  
 

ALL FOR BOOKS: support all students

Help us guarantee every child gets a book! We are once again accepting donations to ensure that all Poe students have the opportunity to take a book home from the Book Fair. Our goal is to collect $600 this year for our Poe students. No amount is too small!

If you are able to and interested in donating, please: 

1. Contribute to the All For Books eWallet here. Note: there is one All For Books eWallet for the whole school even though it says Kindergarten as the grade level. 

2. Purchase a Book Mark designed by the winning artists of the “Campout with a Good Book” Book Mark Contest. 

3. Agree to round up your purchase total to the nearest dollar amount when shopping the Book Fair. 

4. Make a donation of any amount to the All For Books fund at the register when you are visiting the Book Fair.  

 
 

VOLUNTEER

We heavily rely on volunteers to help make this event fun and successful! Our volunteers help kids choose age-appropriate books, compile wishlists for them to take home, and help them tally up the book costs to ensure they have enough money to pay for them. 

If you would like to volunteer when your child's class will be visiting the book fair, you can view the class schedule here. All volunteers must be VIPs approved.
