Book Fair December 9-13

Scholastic Book Fair
December 9-13

Our Scholastic Book Fair will be from Monday, December 9 through Friday, December 13.  The Book Fair is a great way to connect your kids with books they want to read! 

We are having our biggest fair ever this year!  3 more cases of books are coming from Scholastic - normally we only have 6 cases and this year we will have 9 cases!

You can look over the Book Fair flyer (coming home first week of December) with your child.  If your student wishes to purchase items at the Book Fair, students can make their own selections at the fair (Mrs. Eley and other adults will help as needed) or you may complete the order form on the back of the Book List and send it to school with your child. 

Many more books are offered than those shown on the flyer

Children may bring cash or checks (payable to HILLSIDE SCHOOL). 


Your child’s class will be able to shop the book fair on their library day as follows:

Monday 12/9:                   Carr AM & PreK, Pierce AM & PM
Tuesday 12/10:                Waddell, Newhart, Rosenberg, Mellin
Wednesday 12/11:            Mansolino, Schmidt, Clark, Christiance
Thursday 12/12:               Morrone, Sonnie, Winkel, Maccri
Friday 12/13:                   Sterling, Jones, Golick, Zimmerli, Abate

Children may also shop during any lunch/recess if they miss their library day.

**Book Fair Family Night is Tues., Dec. 10 from 3:30 – 7:00 p.m.** This is a great opportunity for your family to shop together.  Credit cards will be accepted.  Students who attend will have a chance to participate in contests and win book fair gift certificates!  Many teachers will also have a “wish list” posted and you have an opportunity to purchase a book for a favorite teacher or classroom and insert a bookplate in the front of the book.

Thank you for encouraging your child to read.  We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the Book Fair.  About 40% of the proceeds from the fair go to support the Hillside library and our author visit assemblies!

Mrs. Susan Eley, Hillside Librarian
