Every year we host two Scholastic Book Fairs in the school library. These book fairs offer a wide variety of books for all reading levels and interests. The proceeds from our book fair sales are invested back into Candalaria For example, this year every student in every classroom received a subscription for Scholastic News, Dyna Math or Storyworks. In past years, we have purchased Smart boards and other classroom equipment.
Our Fall Book Fair is scheduled for October 10-13, 2016. Each day the fair is open before school 8:30-9:05am and after school 3:30-4:30pm. We will also be open during Science Night on Thursday from 6-8pm.
Teacher bins are an important feature of our Candalaria book fairs. The bins contain books selected by your child's teacher that they would like in their classroom library. If you purchase a book from a teacher bin, you receive a 20% discount on the purchase.
If you don't know what books to buy for your child, our teachers also select books they recommend. Look for signs on the shelves that say "teacher pick" and you will know which teacher has made the recommendation. These teacher picks are usually the first to sell out at our fairs.
If you are unable to visit the book fair, you can shop online through our school's Scholastic page and the book you order will be delivered to the school without charge.
Finally, we can't run the book fair without volunteers. Please visit our online sign-up page to view available shifts, starting with set-up on Friday, October 7 and ending with take down on Thursday, October 13.
Thank you for your support of our book fair!
