Welcome to the Scholastic Book Fair!
The Scholastic Book Fair will be on campus this year from Jan 30 – Feb 10, 2021. Supporting SGGS through book fair sales is easy and fun, and proceeds benefit not only the library, but classroom teachers as well.
How Can I Shop the Book Fair This Year?
From January 30-Feb 3, students will preview the book fair during their regular library time at school and create wish lists of their favorite items to bring home.
During the week of February 7th, students will have a chance to shop the book fair once again during their normal library time.
How Does the Book Fair Help SGGS?
When you purchase books or other items in person at the book fair, the school earns up to 50% back in sales depending on the final sales amount. Last year, book sale funds paid for a new book display for the library and thousands of dollars were spent on books for every grade level!
Scholastic also sponsors a “Round Up” campaign in which they donate the money earned by “rounding up” total costs to charity, and they match a monetary donation to the SGGS. Please consider “rounding up”.
Finally, you can purchase books from teachers’ wish lists and donate them to the classroom libraries. This is a great way to give back not only to your child’s current teacher, but also to ones they may have had in the past.
How Do I Pay?
Great News! There are multiple options for payment. We accept credit cards, cash, and checks (made payable to SGGS) or eWallet. eWallet is an exciting feature that allows students the opportunity to budget and spend money with their own “credit card”. Parents or friends and family can add funds to the account for kids to then use at the book fair. Please don’t to forget include 5% sales tax when sending in payment or adding to the eWallet.
What if I Have Questions?
The SGGS Librarian, and all knowing Scholastic guru, Mrs. Grosz is here to help should you have any questions at all! Feel free to send her an email.
