The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming to St. Serra
January 25 to February 4, 2022
Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Books bring us together! Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. Students are able to purchase books, games, small accessories, and posters, and we earn books for our classrooms and library!
- TK – 8th grade students will shop with their class. See the 2022 shopping schedule HERE.
- Preschool families, parents, and guests are welcome to shop the Book Fair with their preschooler during regular school hours.
Your child will receive a Book Fair packet to bring home, including a parent letter, shopping schedule and shopping envelope. If your child did not receive packet, you can pick one up in the School Office.
Please fill out ONE envelope per student and indicate how they will pay for their Book Fair purchases (they can use eWallet, a check or cash). If selecting the check or cash option, be sure to enclose your payment in the envelope. Remember to turn the envelope into your child’s homeroom teacher by no later than Friday, January 21, 2022.
Also indicate on the envelope what your child is allowed to purchase (books only, or books and supplies), and if you would like leftover funds to be donated to “All for Books” (change will go towards purchasing books for the St. Serra library).
TO REDUCE CASH HANDLING AT THIS EVENT, we greatly prefer that parents utilize Scholastic’s free eWallet option for your student(s). For more information about eWallet and to sign up, CLICK HERE or scan this QR code:
The homeroom with the most e-Wallet sign-ups will receive a donut party!
Teachers get to shop at the Book Fair too! You can purchase gift certificates for any St. Junipero Serra Catholic School teacher to redeem at our 2022 Scholastic Book Fair. Send in the completed ORDER FORM with payment and teachers will be provided with their gift certificates to help purchase books and other resources for their classroom.
As an extra incentive, the top 5 children who donate the most gift certificates to teachers will be able to play football with Mr. Tolzda during recess! The exact date in February will be determined, once winners are identified.
If any change is due back to you, including from checks, it will be returned in cash in your child’s envelope (unless the option to donate to All for Books is selected).
Any leftover funds in an eWallet will become an eGift card balance - which never expires - and can be used throughout Scholastic online or to fund an eWallet for a future Book Fair. You may also elect to donate any leftover eWallet funds to All for Books - simply check this option on your child's shopping envelope.
