Scholastic Book Fair Starts Monday!

Our Scholastic Book Fair will be held at Saint James School next week in the school gymnasium.  The book fair is a great way to encourage reading and build home libraries.  It is also a great way to support our school as 50% of all purchases go directly to the school.

All students will have an opportunity to visit the book fair with their class.  Younger students (preK-5th) will first make a “Wish List” and then they will have a secondary opportunity to visit the fair to purchase the items on their wish list.  Middle school students (6th-8th) will visit the fair one time to make purchases as follows:  6th graders on Monday, 7th graders on Tuesday, and 8th graders on Wednesday.

**Please remember to send along a shopping bag for your child’s purchases.



The easiest way for your child to make purchases at the book fair is via the eWallet option.  This is a convenient option that avoids children having to carry money to school and assists our volunteers greatly during checkout.  We strongly encourage you to sign up for eWallet by following this link.  


Parent Shopping Hours

The book fair will be open for Parent Shopping Hours on Tuesday and Wednesday between 7:15-7:45am and 1:30-2:45pm. Parents who visit the fair will be able to enter a raffle so we encourage you to stop by!  This will also give you the opportunity to purchase books for your child’s classroom teacher.

Our book fair is available online from 10/3 to 10/16 by clicking HERE.  All books ordered online will be shipped directly to your home and any book-only orders of $25 or more will ship for free.  Please do keep in mind that online orders earn 25% profit for the school, not the same 50% as purchases made in-person at our fair.


Pre-Order the Newest Cat Kid and Wimpy Kid Books!

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Diper Overlode” is coming out on October 25.  You can pre-order a paperback copy at the book fair for $9.99.  “Cat Kid: Comic Club Collaborations” is coming out on November 29.  You can pre-order a paperback copy for $12.99.  To place an order for either book, visit the fair during Parent Shopping Hours or add the books to your child’s wish list.  The books will arrive at school shortly after the release dates and will be sent home with your child.
