Explorer Express for 11/1/22

WES Book Fair

Lollipops, Gumdrops, and Books Galore; Plenty of Sweet Treats to be found at this year's Scholastic Book Store November 7th-18th.

Students will have the opportunity the week of November 7th   during specials to preview and create a wish list for this year's Scholastic book fair.  Please look for your student(s) wish list so that you can plan accordingly.   The week of November 14th students will have an opportunity to shop during their Media Makers special time.  

We ask that you set up an eWallet so that students have a contactless way to pay for their books.  We will accept cash, credit cards, and checks made out to WES PTA but we strongly encourage you to set up an eWallet to keep contacts at a minimum.  Per Scholastics Guidelines, TAX will be added to all purchases this year!  You can find information on how to set up your child's eWallet at our school's fair website at:
