Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings to school the books kids want to read. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
Book Fair dates: September 21, 2015 to September 25, 2015.
Shopping hours: Tuesday the 22nd and Wednesday the 23rd from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
Thursday the 24th from 4pm to 8pm.
Friday the 25th from 8am to 12pm.
If you are unable to attend the Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at scholastic.com/fair, from September 13th to September 26th.
We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair!
Remember, all purchases benefit our school.
