Reading Oasis: A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books!

Our eighth annual Scholastic Book Fair is here! Can you believe the school library has been hosting this fair for 8 years!?!

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 our students want to read. Giving students access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more students practice reading, the better they’ll get. Reading is vital to every student’s success, and it’s the door opener to 21st century skills!

From Monday, December 2nd - Wednesday, December 4th from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. you can shop our book fair up in the school library or at all hours on our online fair by clicking here. On Tuesday, December 3rd from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., the book fair will feature a special Family Night in conjunction with the Parent/Teacher Conferences. Parents, students, teachers, families, and the school community are invited to attend.

All for Books, our annual fundraiser, in conjunction with the book fair will provide funds this year to buy books for children in the Child Life Program (CLP) at Winthrop-University Hospital. All purchases benefit our school too. Proceeds from the Fair will be used to buy books for the school library, and to support activities of the school’s chapter of the National English Honor Society (NEHS), such as our annual author visit.

Books enrich our student’s lives – and we all reap the benefits.
