It’s almost time for the Fall Scholastic Book Fair, and our theme this season is PIRATES! Next week we will be having all sorts of activities leading up to this exciting event. Classrooms will be decorating their doors to go with the pirate theme. There will be prizes such as gift certificates and dress down days.
Between Sept. 26 and Sept. 30, be sure to send in your loose change! It’s our All For Books Coin Drive! Scholastic matches these funds and we purchase books for classroom libraries – plus Scholastic donates an equal number of books to charity! The classes on each campus that collect the most win a party! While it is a coin drive, paper money counts as well.
There will also be a Treasure Guessing Jar. For fifty cents, students can enter a guess of the number of pieces in the jar. Winners receive book fair gift certificates!
All of these activities lead up to the Book Fair, which runs from Oct. 4 until Oct. 6. Teachers and students can dress like a pirate on Tuesday, Oct. 4, with prizes for the best costumes.
BFA would like to thank the hard-working parent volunteers who make this event possible!
