Scholastic Book Fair

2017 Scholastic Book Fair — October  12th – 19th

WANTED...READERS! Mosey on over to the Pond Cove 4th Grade Knuckle for the PCPA’s annual Scholastic Book Fair, where you will find a fabulous selection of new books and a chance to practice those essential reading skills. This year’s theme is Wild West: Saddle up and read! See what Greg and Rowley have in store in the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid 12: The Getaway. Check out some of the featured books at our Pond Cove Book Fair page.  Books can be ordered online from October 6 - 19, 2017


The 2017 Book Fair hours will be:

Thursday, October 12:  9:00am-3:30pm
Friday, October 13:  9:00am-3:30pm
Monday, October 16:  9:00am-3:30pm
Tuesday, October 17:  9:00am-7:30pm (Extended Family Hours)
Wednesday, October 18:  9:00am-2:30pm
Thursday, October 19:  9:00am-7:30pm (BONUS Extended Family Hours)


VOLUNTEER!!!!! Please consider taking a shift.

The class visit times are noted on the volunteer sign up.


This year, as in the past, grades 1 thru 4 will visit the book fair during their normal Media Center time in the 6-day allied arts rotation. Kindergarten classes will visit the fair with their classes for a preview, and are encouraged to return during family hours to shop for books!


Because of space constraints, we will only be selling the non-book items during the extended family hours from 3:30-7:30pm (with the exception of a few bookmarks, a select pencil or small eraser as we did last year).


Please consider purchasing a book for your child's classroom library from one of the Teacher Wish Baskets.  All classroom teachers, instructional support, allied arts and other staff included in this program.  Ask a volunteer for details.
We will once again bring back our Book Swap, allowing people to donate books for those students who forget to bring money with them for purchasing books. The book swap will happen in the Media Center during each class's book fair visiting time. Please contact Sandy Shapiro-Hurt for more information and to volunteer at the book swap.

Due to the increased security policy for our school building, doors cannot remain unlocked during after-hours as they have in years past. We will continue our shorter after school hours as a result, but have included two long days on October 17 and 19 to accommodate family visits until 7:30pm. Families are welcome anytime during fair hours, of course, and online purchasing will be available 10/6-10/19.
