Altha School will host a Scholastic Book Fair on November 9 - 13 in the media center.
Families, teachers, and the community are invited to attend the fair, which will feature the theme: “Destination Book Fair: Read Around the World”. Hours for the fair will be 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily. On Tuesday, November, 10 there will be a special Family Event from 3 - 6 p.m. The event will include refreshments, door prizes, and time to browse at the fair.
Students also have an opportunity to invite a grandparent or another “grand” person to visit the Book Fair with them. This “Grand Event” will be on Thursday, November 12 from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. There will be refreshments, time to shop together at the Book Fair.
The book fair will offer specially priced books and educational products, including new releases, award-winning titles, children’s classics, interactive software, current bestsellers, and books for parents from more than 150 publishers.
The book fair will also feature the One for Books program. This program’s goal is to bring more books into schools at the local level and promote reading globally. Donate just $1 or some loose change and sign a book slip so it can be displayed at the book fair. Scholastic Book Fairs will match the One for Books dollars you raise with a donation of up to a million books to three non-profit organizations devoted to improving reading skills among children: Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc., National Center for Family Literacy and Toys for Tots.
As always, our Scholastic Book Fair promises to be a great event for literacy.
