Book Fair - Reading is My Superpower!

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. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Book Fair at SCC Middle School: Nov 30-Dec 7
Students can shop: in the library anytime during the school day, as long as their teacher okays it
Parents can shop: before and after our concerts or online (see below for more info)

Book Fair ONLINE: Nov 23-Dec 7  →
This is a splendid option if you would like to shop a larger variety, shop for children not at the middle school, or just want to shop on your own time at home. Purchased items will be shipped to the school after May 20 and delivered to students.

Shop Before & After Concerts: Dec 1 and 6 from 3:30-8:00 p.m.
Stop by before you’re the musical concerts with your child to support their continued reading success. If items are sold out, the online fair is always a great option.

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.

There are also a couple ways for students to win books from the book fair. Locker lottery is an event every year where students are randomly chosen each day and will find a winning ticket attached to their locker or presented by their teacher. All students are automatically entered into the locker lottery. Students also have the opportunity create their own superhero mask and return it to the library by Dec 2; winners in each grade level are chosen for their outstanding artistic abilities. Winners in both contests will receive a free book from the book fair.

As part of our superhero theme, students are also encouraged to wear their blue and white on Dec 2 to show that they are SCC Super Students.  And our new green screen area will be available for pictures with superhero props on Dec 7 to wrap up our fair.

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair!
