Our bi-annual Scholastic Book Fair is coming soon! Thanks to Scholastic Books, Amigos Por Vida - Friends For Life CS, is able to provide a large variety of books for all ages. While many of our students are able to read using the technology devices in school, we believe hard copies of books are invaluable as a learning tool and are happy to provide the students an opportunity to purchase books and educational items that the school does not have available or other is inaccessible to the students. Books, posters, DIY kits, and more are offered in the book fair, giving every student something to be excited about. In the past the students have also been able to meet authors of popular books in person as well as through other communication methods such as skype.
Prior to our sale, students are given time to get a preview of all the available items and make a wish list. The "store" is then open to them daily for a week and a final sale open to the students and their parents brings the fair to a close. This is also accompanied with a Literacy Night event where students are invited to participate in a read along as well as create crafts related to the book. The Schoolastic Book Fair is not only beneficial to the community but also benefits the school as well. Becuase of the high participation level of the community the school also gains a generous portion of the sales that goes to purchasing more books for our local library. We thank Scholastic Books and the community for the continued success and look forward to this years fair! - PS
