Our “Under the Sea” Book Fair has finally arrived! The kids have been so excited to watch the fair coming together and knowing it’s so close for their turn to shop.
When can my child shop?
Starting tomorrow, kids can come in during their scheduled book borrowing time, OR during their assigned cohort day during lunch and after school. The schedule is as follows:
Friday, October 15th – Fifth Graders during lunch recess and after school 3:30-5:00pm
Monday, October 18th- Fourth Graders during lunch recess and after school 3:30-5:00pm
Tuesday, October 19th -Third Graders during lunch recess and after school 3:30-5:00pm
Wednesday, October 20th - Second Graders during lunch recess and after school 3:30-5:00pm
Thursday, October 21st -First Graders during lunch recess and after school 2:00-3:30pm
Friday, October 22nd -Kindergartners during lunch recess and after school 3:30-5:00pm
The easiest way for them to purchase is by using Scholastic’s eWallet (a virtual gift card). To make an eWallet account for your child please click here: eWallet. Scroll down to the green panel and select “Get Started” to set up an account for your child. If you have more than one child at South, it’s best to set up an individual eWallet for each child. Cash will still be accepted if you do not set up an eWallet. If you’d like to send Book Fair staff a note on content that is approved (or not approved) to buy, simply print out the eWallet and hand write instructions for staff to follow. We’ll do our best to accommodate!

How can I buy a book for our teacher?
The teachers and staff have all picked out books that they’d like to add to their classroom library. To donate to an individual teacher or staff member please click here: Teacher eWallets to add funds to their eWallet account so they can purchase titles at the fair.

We are all so thankful for your support of our South School library. Just a reminder that all of our school proceeds from the book fair go directly back to our students. Library funds are used to purchase new books for the library, to fund our award winning “Reading Tigers” and “Battle of the Books” programs, and helps pay for our Reading Challenges and awards.
