The time has arrived…. our Winter Book Fair is finally here! Seen in the photo from behind our “Special Event Sparkle Curtain” (the best way to keep a little bit of mystery), the Scholastic Book Fair has taken over the Johnson Learning Leopard Library. The excitement in the halls is palpable, and the students are unbelivably eager to see all of the educational and fun books that Scholastic has sent our way.
Students will be shopping at the Book Fair during their scheduled library time. Parents are welcome to join their students in shopping during this time. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students can also visit the Book Fair in the morning during our regular open checkout time (8:00-8:45).
The Book Fair will be open the evening of Thursday, December 12 before and after the Johnson PTO meeting, as well as the evening of Tuesday, December 17 before and after the Winter Chorus Concert. This is a perfect time to stop by with your family and get all of your holiday book shopping finished! Look for Book Fair Volunteers for help with answering questions, calculating totals, and asking any other Book Fair related questions. And of course, look for me to say hello!
Are you looking for the perfect holiday present for your favorite teacher? Skip the mug or the scented soap, and instead go for a book to add to their classroom collection. Books make wonderful holiday gifts, and we’ve done the hardest part for you – figuring out which book your teacher would like! Keep an eye out for the Johnson Library WishList tree, which is near the library door, close to the register. Each homeroom teacher has an “ornament” hanging on the tree, and inside each envelope is a WishList filled out to specify which titles they would like the most for their classroom. WishLists include all of the details that you need to find exactly what your teacher wants for the holidays this year. Deliver it immediately, take it home and wrap it, drop it off to Santa to deliver… however your teacher receives it, they’re sure to be delighted!
Remember, all purchases made at the Scholastic Book Fair bring funds into the Johnson Elementary School Library. Proceeds from Book Fair sales help to purchase new materials for the school library. The Scholastic Book Fair is our library’s only fundraiser – so if you’ve had your eye on a book, this is a perfect time to buy it!
Curious about what’s behind that sparkling curtain? Stop by the Johnson Elementary School Winter Book Fair between December 9-17 for perfect fun and educational holiday gifts for the whole family. I hope to see you there!
