The Scholastic Book Fair is Here!!! 

Students are previewing  the Book Fair and filling out wish lists this Monday and Tuesday during class time.  Students and families are invited to purchase books during their allotted time in school Wednesday through Friday and during the family shopping times (please see below).   All Scholastic purchases directly benefit our school by helping to fund in-school field trips, facility improvements, as well as author visits. 

How can your family support the Book Fair?

1. Attend one of the after-school family shopping times located at the Music Room/Stage:

Wednesday, Nov. 16th from 4:30 - 6pm 

Thursday, Nov. 17th from 12 - 4pm and 5 - 8pm

Friday, Nov. 18th from 12 - 4pm 

2. Set up an eWallet account for your student!

This is a safe and easy cash alternative to providing your child with funds to use at the Book Fair. You can start an account at the PGS Book Fair homepage at:

3. Shop together online at home and share the above site with family and friends! PGS earns money back on all online Scholastic purchases made between Nov. 14th and Nov. 27th.

Thank you for all of your support! 

We look forward to seeing you all at the Book Fair!
