Dear KCSMA Parents,
Right now, through October 24, the Scholastic Book Fair is at KCSMA!!! The book fair is a great opportunity to add books to your home library or purchase books to donate to your child’s classroom, and the school library will earn money to fill its shelves and add new technology.
The book fair offers hundreds of books, usually starting at $3.99. There are also bookmarks, erasers, pencils, and other small items available, starting at 50 cents. You may view some of the items available at http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/fallesvideo/
Your child will visit the book fair with their class to preview the books and fill out a wishlist. Starting October 17, you may send in cash, along with their wishlist, in a sealed envelope or baggie for your child to spend at the book fair. Be sure to include 6% sales tax. Please mark your child’s name, their teacher’s name, amount enclosed, and write Book Fair on the envelope. No checks will be accepted.
Parents are welcome to shop at the book fair, too. The shopping hours may be viewed at the online shopping link below. The fair will be open during school hours, late on both Fridays, open late during some conference hours, and will be open during Safety Night. Be sure to check out your child’s teacher’s wishlist if you would like to purchase a book to donate to their classroom. Classroom wishlists will be available at the book fair.
You may also purchase books through October 26, at the online fair at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/kennesawchartersciencemath Feel free to share the online link with out of town relatives who may wish to shop for your child. Any books ordered online will be shipped to the school after October 26, and there are no shipping charges.
This year, one of our goals is to ensure as many children as possible receive books and have access to books. One of the ways we can do that is through the All for Books program*. During our book fair in October 2013, we collected $538 for this program. Like last year, we will be collecting change at the book fair, and all of the money raised during last Friday’s $1 N.U.T. pass day will go to this incredible program. All of the money collected will be used to purchase more books for KCSMA students, classrooms, and the media center. With your help, we can beat last year’s number!
*Not only does your donation help our cause, but Scholastic Book Fairs will match monetary donations raised with a donation of up to one million books to two non-profit organizations dedicated to helping children, families, and teachers acquire books and educational resources – Kids in Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc.
