Book Fair at Church St. School

May 9 to 13 during school hours.

How does it work?

The Book Fair is set up like a bookstore inside the school, in the library. The flyer will be send home this week listing the majority of the books that will be available, but not everything. Students can choose their books from the flyer or make their choice when their class comes to the Book Fair, on their designated day.

Once the student picks the book/books they want to buy, payment will take place at the school (library) via cash, a check made to Church Street School, or using an e-wallet. The students will then bring their new books home that same day.

What is an e-wallet?

This is a way in which families can add credit to an account for the student to do their own shopping, without carrying cash to school. You set it up through the scholastic website for Church St. School.

Be aware that the balance on the e-wallet cannot be refunded as cash, but remains available as a gift card for Scholastic purchases in the future.

Can I buy the books online instead?

Yes! The school is also hosting a virtual fair between May 9-22. You can access the virtual fair here.

Remember to use this link for your purchases, because EVERY purchase from the Book Fair earns rewards for our school. These rewards are then used to buy MORE BOOKS for our school library.

Note that the Virtual Store is only open between May 9-22.

Happy reading!
