Scholastic Book Fair 4/30-5/2
Looking for a great birthday gift, an awesome summer read, or a little something to keep your child busy? A book is just the thing, and the 2019 Scholastic Book Fair is fast approaching!
Please consider joining our team of volunteers. This book fair is only possible because we have volunteers who help run the cashiers and the teacher wish lists. We need volunteers from Monday, April 29th to Friday, May 3rd. Follow the link to sign up! https://volunteer.scholastic.com/#/signup/Uwqq2laS5 Thank you!
Scholastic is offering a new way to purchase books to reduce the number of cash transactions called an eWallet. You can easily make an eWallet for your child at the Scholastic Homepage for Thoreau.
