Paws for Books Fair

A Blog Post from Your School Library:

The Scholastic “Paws for Books” Fair is Coming!

Save the Dates: May 8th-10th, 2018

Dear German Mills Parents and Families,

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming back to the German Mills school library, just in time for stocking up on books for Spring and Summer reading! As we’ve done in the past, this May book fair coincides with a special school-wide event, our Aussie X family dance night. Next Tuesday, May 8th, students will preview the book fair with their classes and make tentative selections to discuss with families at home. Children who bring cash or a cheque may purchase their items with their classes on Wednesday, May 9th. The book fair will also be open from 3:30-4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, May 8th-10th, for family shopping. As an extra bonus, we will also be open on the evening of Thursday, May 10th during our Aussie X family sport night. Did you know that all funds earned from book fair sales are used to support library and literacy programs? Once again, we are setting an achievable $3500 sales goal. If we meet our target, we will earn the 60% maximum credit in book fair rewards which will be used towards new books to enhance our library collection. All funds earned during our December 2017 book fair were spent on hands-on learning materials in our library’s new MakerSpace. We have since enhanced that initial budget with additional technology, constructive, and arts items, and we are now in the process of considering further technology purchases for our MakerSpace. Please consider shopping at our book fair this May, and help us reach our achievable goal. Thank you in advance for helping us foster a love for reading, literacy, and all types of learning! See you at the fair!
