Please visit our Fall Book Fair next week October 5-9 from 8:30am - 2:30pm in the PTA room on the 1st floor. A number of new and fascinating books will be available for families to purchase. By purchasing books at the fair, you help the school earn credit with Scholastic that can be used for more books and educational materials for 217 classrooms.
Join Your Children During Their Book Fair Visit!
Children will visit the Fair with their classes. Book Fair schedule is subject to change, so class specific reminders will be emailed to you if teachers change their class visit time. Please join your children during their class visit and help them select the books, come directly to the PTA room (1st Floor). Come earlier and/or stay later if you're considering being a PTA volunteer at the Fair! Email Erin Olavesen firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help us during the Book Fair week.
If You Can't Come - Send the Money with Your Child
If your child will be buying books at the fair without your help, please send in their money with them in a clearly labeled envelope or plastic baggie, with their name and the total amount enclosed. Remember to add 10% for tax that will be added at the register.
Teachers' Wish Lists
Every year 217 PTA offers the teachers to set aside some books in the fair that they would like to have for their classrooms. Buy a book or two from your teacher's Wish List box when you visit the Fair! If you can't come to the fair, but wish to contribute to your child's classroom library, send extra money with your child in a zip lock bag and please mark your contributions towards your teacher’s wish list as “Class Gift”.
