Scholastic Book Fair Teacher Wish list

Did you know that along with the book fair is a Teacher Wish List program?  Teachers have taken the time to make a wish list of books that they feel our kids would enjoy having in the classroom for them to have a chance to read.  These are available for parents or family members to purchase and to donate to your child’s class. At the end of the fair any books purchased will have a sticker placed in them with the child’s name who has donated the book and be presented to the teacher.  This is a great way to contribute to adding more current, exciting books into our children’s classrooms! For more information, pop by the book fair and or email Megan at
