THE SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR IS MARCH 14-18!
Good News Rosa Parks Families!
Our Scholastic Book Fair will be back in person this Spring! Starting on March 14th through March 18th, students and families will be able to enjoy the latest titles available in store. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s book fair will look a little different. Please read this message carefully since there are a lot of things you need to know before you head to the Book Fair.
This year’s Book Fair will offer different options for families:
1 - Our In-Person Book Fair will be open for ONE hour after school Monday, March 14 through Thursday, March 17 from 3:45 pm-4:45 pm, and for TWO hours after school on Friday, March 18th, from 3:45-5:45 pm.
In order to access the Book Fair from Monday 14th – Thursday 17th in the Art Room you will need to sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090948ADAF2FABFA7-scholastic and select one 10-min time slot. Please be aware that only people who sign up will be allowed in the ArtRoom. Only three families will be allowed per time slot. Time will be very limited, so we highly recommend that you check the online Book Fair and pick the books that your child is interested in purchasing before coming to your selected time slot. Students will also have a chance to preview the Book Fair on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during school hours and take note of the titles that most interest them. We also recommend that you use the Scholastic eWallet digital payment system. For more information on this cashless option click here: Introduction to eWallet (brightcove.net) and here: Parent How it Works (scholastic.com).
On Friday, March 18th we are rolling our Book Fair cases outside to give more families an opportunity to enjoy the Fair! We will be in the back of the school from 3:45 pm – 5:45 pm.
We need your help! If you would like to volunteer for our Book Fair, please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090948ADAF2FABFA7-book
