The Scholastic Book Fair starts on Monday, October 20th with students practicing their math skills at the Book Fair as they make book wish lists and calculate the total cost including taxes. The Book Fair will be open weekdays at Wilmington Middle School from October 20 -24, between 7:45 and 3:15, and on Thursday, October 23 from 1:00 to 7:00 for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Featured will be a wide range of books from more than 150 publishers for children and adults. Parents, students, teachers, and the community are invited to attend. To make it convenient for those who cannot attend the Book Fair, or to see and select even more titles than available at the school, there is an online opportunity to visit the Book Fair at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/wilmingtonmiddleschool. All books will be delivered to the Wilmington Middle School for pick-up. Proceeds from the Fair will be used for the purchase of new library materials and to support future library programs. “The W.E. PTO, Book Fair Chairperson, Tommie Dyer, and student library aides are working very hard to put on a great book fair event – one that promotes literacy and reading, while also raising money for much-needed library resources,” said Ms. Reigh.
Bruning Elementary School will be holding their book fair from October 16th until the 24th. Parents will also be able to purchase books during parent teacher conferences on Thursday, the 23rd. Concluding the run of fall book fairs is Steven’s Intermediate School. They will be holding their book fair from November 3rd to the 7th.
