Spring Book Fair

March 9 to 13!  

 We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.


Our Book Fair is part of a reading event that brings to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they'll get. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent's direct involvement in his/her child's education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair.

 Before your visit, be sure to download the FREE Book Fairs App to help you find the right books for your child. For more information, visit: All booked up during Book Fair week? Visit our Online Fair, available March 1 - 14, at


Please contact your child's teacher or room parent for class visit details.  Time to volunteer during Book Fair? Contact Tina Montesano at Thanks for your support!
