NES PTA plans on hosting two book fairs during the 2020 – 2021 school year with appropriate Covid-19 health precautions. Book fairs are typically held in October and February during the parent/teacher conference weeks. NES PTA tries to ensure the book fair is staffed during conference hours so parents can shop the book fair too!
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level.
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Please make plans to come to our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
- Teachers and the school librarian can select books free of charge for their rooms.
- The school earns “Scholastic Dollars” for every dollar sold. These “Scholastic Dollars” can be used at the scholastic store to buy books and supplies (robotics kits, workbooks, flash cards)
- Students get the experience of “shopping”.
- Students practice decision making by selecting items within their budget.
Love books? Volunteer to help at the Book Fair. You can decorate and set up, help kids select books, help as a cashier or help pack up. There are lots of ways to participate. A request for volunteers will be sent out a few weeks a head of the book fair. Please refer to the Volunteer Page regarding requirements designed to help ensure our children’s safety.
See you at the Book Fair!
