2018 Scholastic Book Fair


The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school!  For your convenience, there are two shopping options: online and at the in-school Book Fair held in the elementary media center.

Online Shopping: January 29-February 18
Book Fair Preview Dates: February 7-8
Book Fair Shopping: February 9-15 -- 8:00 a.m. through 2:30 p.m.
PTO Night: Tuesday February 13 -- Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Here are some tips to consider before you visit:

·         Check out Orange Grove’s Book Fair homepage at www.scholastic.com/bf/orangegrovecharterbookfair

·         Look for the booklist flyer in your child’s folder or check out the interactive flyer on the Book Fair homepage.  You’ll see a sample of the great titles that will be available at our Book Fair. Many parents find it helpful to make a wish list ahead of time.

·         Get a jump-start on shopping through our Online Book Fair, which runs January 29-February 18. This option provides a larger, expanded selection of books for all ages. Our school will receive two shipments of books from online orders, one during the book fair and one 7-10 days after online shopping closes.

·         Check online and at the Book Fair for Wish Lists created by your child’s teachers. These are titles that they would like to add to their class library. Refreshing the classroom libraries regularly gives students a reason to keep reading.

·         Instead of sending money with your child, consider setting up an eWallet account for your child. Visit the homepage link above to learn more about this payment option.

·         Download the Book Fairs app to get the latest reading level information, book trailers, podcasts, and more. It’s the perfect shopping companion!

I hope you can make it! If you’re interested in volunteering in the media center during the Book Fair, please visit our school’s homepage and follow the link to volunteer.

You are invited to join your child and help him/her find the books he/she will enjoy reading. Check your class newsletters for your child’s preview and shopping times.
