The Scholastic Book Fair is officially open for business, and offers extended hours on Wednesday for your shopping convenience. The weeklong event is Bonny Slope’s only library fundraiser, with proceeds funding library materials, reading-related programs, and going directly toward the purchase of new books for our library shelves, including this year's OBOB books. Last year, the event brought in close to $5000 for BSE.
Organizers Jenna Dornblaser and Jen Timmins are offering some fun incentives for both teachers and students to encourage participation this year. A raffle was held for teachers who attended the Teacher Preview - and a $10 gift certificate for the Book Fair was up for grabs. Additionally, two students from each grade will win a $5 Scholastic gift certificate by guessing how many eyeballs are in the monster-themed Book Fair.
“We both look forward to how excited the kids get. It makes all the effort and weeks leading up to the event worth it,” said Dornblaser.
Not only is reading vital to the success of our children, finding books of interest to them can turn reading into a favorite pastime. “I love to lose myself in a book and want this so much for my own kids, all kids actually. There’s just something wonderful and safe about snuggling into a comfy chair with characters that feel like friends. The adventures are endless!” said Timmins.
Shoppers will enjoy a larger, more convenient check out process this year. With Technology in its new home, organizers had more room with which to work.
In addition to Wednesday’s extended hours, kids are able to shop before/after school and during recess.
