Book Fair Info for Elementary

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the
power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
  • Set the example. Let children see you read.
  • Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
We will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair to help you support reading in your children’s lives.

Open during Conferences on Feb 23, and Dr Seuss Night on Feb 26 to help you support reading in your children’s lives.

Book Fair Dates: 
  • Feb 23 – Mar 3 at SCC Elementary Library
  • Feb 18 – Mar 6 for the online fair. Link on the library page.
Shopping Hours: Students should bring money on the day of their library class. Feel free to send a note with your child if they have requirements for their money.

The book fair is open on these days from 7:30-10:30 and 12-3.
It will be closed all other times because of other duties the staff need to cover.

Volunteers: We are also looking for volunteers to help on Feb 23 and Feb 26. To sign up to work the Fair click here.

We are running a classroom wish list program, which will be available during conferences. Teachers will pick out books that they would like for their classroom libraries. Please consider supporting our readers by purchasing one of these classroom wish list books.

AND the teachers need your help to win $100 for their classrooms. During conferences make sure you pick up a raffle ticket from your child’s teacher, walk it down to the library, and drop it in our raffle box. At the end of the night we will be choosing a teacher at random for the big prize!

For the students we are having a word search prize drawing. Student can pick up a word search from the library, fill it out, and return it by Feb 27. Five lucky students will be drawn from the entries and will win a free book!

If you’re all booked up during Book Fair week be sure to visit the Book Fair onlineOur Online Fair is available for an extended time from Feb 18 – Mar 6. These purchases will be shipped to the school after Mar 6 and delivered to classrooms. 

Thank you very much and hope to see you there!
