Once Upon A Time Book Fair

Once Upon A Time...

Dear Parents and Families,

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills kids learn, it is the one you can influence the most. We invite you to visit our enchanting Scholastic Book Fair this December 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.

Reading is vital to every child’s success, and it’s the door opener to the 21st century for all children. 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.

Book Fair Dates:   December 6-14, 2016

Before you visit the Book Fair, be sure to download the FREE Book Fairs App to help you find the right fit books for your student by providing a short description on the book AR reading levels. For more information, visit: scholastic.com/apps/bookfairs. And if you’re all booked up during Book Fair week be sure to visit the Book Fair online. Our Online Fair is available for an extended time from December 6th through December 26th. Books purchased in the online book fair have free shipping to the school and will be available to pick up in the library when school resumes in January. The book fair accepts cash, credit and checks (please make checks out to “Monte Vista Middle School”).

We look forward to having you participate in our Fair, and remember, all purchases benefit our school and your students.
