Need a New Book for Summer Reading?

We are chugging along towards summer at a pretty brisk pace. But before we get there I want everyone to have the chance to pick up some new summer reading material. To that end, the middle school is holding a book fair! (though anyone in the district can stop by and shop online)

Shop Online Dates - May 4-18

Our online book fair has a wide variety of books from Scholastic, from beginning reader picture books to adult best sellers. Anything purchased on the online fair will be shipped to school for free after May 18 and delivered to students. Students in K-12 can find books at our online book fair.

Shop at School Dates -- May 11-18
In the middle school library.
Open to students from 7:45-3pm daily.
Open to parents and community members on May 12 and 17 from 3:30-8pm.

Books that are available for purchase during these dates at the middle school are geared more towards grades 5-8. There are also school supplies and posters available during this time.

Reading for pleasure 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 your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
  • Support our school’s Book Fair by allowing your children to choose their own books to read.
Remember, all purchases benefit our school. To that end, we are running a classroom wish list program again this year. Teachers will be pulling books that they would like for their classrooms, and if you feel able, you can purchase one of these book to donate to your child’s teacher. Building classroom libraries and having children surrounded by books will lead to reading success.

If you have any questions about the book fair, please contact me at aolson[at]
