YARMOUTH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BOOK FAIR!

Dear Parents,     

We are having our annual Fall Book Fair sponsored by the Y.E.S. Library!  This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to buy high-quality reading and activity books, in hardcover and paperback, for yourselves and as gifts. The Book Fair will be held in the Y.E.S. Library, Monday, Oct. 22nd through Friday, Oct. 26th (ending at noon.)  Your child will attend the fair with his/her class for viewing and purchasing twice during this time. (Yes, students are allowed to bring money in and buy books when they come with their class.)  All parents, relatives, and friends are also invited to visit the fair anytime during the regular school hours or the extended hours on two afternoon/evenings:  Tuesday, Oct. 23rd and Wednesday, Oct. 24th during 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm.  Come join your young reader for lunch if you come in to shop during the day! 

If you are interested in volunteering to help out for a shift during one of the days or evenings, please  go to the Book Fair Volunteer Google Doc at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kiFEyxp1duzi42CmNM2sA_HI6_XD7nwH4qL-aObrURI/edit#gid=0 .  A sign-up poster is also available next to the display case by the school office. 

Please take this opportunity to look through the book flyer coming home with students next week, although note that this is just a sampling of what is to come!  Order forms on the back page of the flyer do not need to be returned.  The materials in the book fair include picture books, easy readers, fiction chapter books, history, science, biography, sports, activity and reference books.  Our book fair does include some non-book items such as pencils, erasers, bookmarks, and an assortment of educational games and activities.  Talk to your child about what you wish for them to purchase.     

This year we are also offering the ability to make purchases online!  Though this certainly is nothing like having the chance to handle a book and flip through it's pages, it may come in handy for some of you.  Go to YES Book Fair online https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/cptoolkit/homepage.do?method=homepage&url=yarmouthelementaryschool1 to see how this works.  Please feel free to pass this link on to anyone!  It will be open for business until Wednesday, Oct. 31st.  All of those orders will be shipped FREE to our school.     We earn a profit on every dollar sold and will use the funds we raise to purchase new books and resources for the Y.E.S. Library.  You will also have an opportunity to help add books to the classroom libraries by purchasing, for a teacher, books from their “Classroom Wish List” in the Library or gift certificates.  Thank you for supporting our school and for helping us to promote READING and learning as a life-long activity!

If making out a check, please make it payable to:

“Yarmouth Elementary School”  -  with NO SALES TAX collected!

Happy Reading!
