Our fall book fair is right around the corner! The fair will be open on Thursday, November 8th from 7:45am – 4pm and Friday, November 9th from 7:45am – 4pm. Each year, our kids get so excited when they see the fair being set up in the gym. Every sale made during this fall book fair directly impacts Prairie as the fair is one of our biggest PTA fundraisers.
There are a few options for purchasing books at the book fair:
- Each class has a designated time when they will visit the book fair with their teacher. They can purchase books during this time, create a wish list, or do both! You may send money with your student so they can shop the fair with their class. View the classroom book fair schedule below.
- Every student will also have a chance to visit the fair with their special guest on Friday, November 8th.
- Additionally, students may shop the book fair before and after school.
If you have any questions, please contact Amy Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
