Four Things About Our Book Fair
Volunteer: This week the students looked at all that Camp Read S’more has to offer! Next week students will have designated time to buy books! We will also have a family night on Thursday, November 16th from 5:00PM - 7:00PM. Don’t forget to set up your student’s ewallet! We need parent volunteers, please! No experience needed! Please use the link to sign up. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C4FA5AE2EABFA7-45584985-camp
Families: During the book fair the library does not accept any library book returns as there is no room to store them while the fair is running. Please disregard any overdue notices via email until the week prior to Thanksgiving break.
Setup an eWallet: No more bills stuffed in backpacks! At the Scholastic Book Fair, kids shop without cash thanks to eWallet, a digital payment account for purchases at the Fair. Family and friends contribute funds. Then kids choose their own books. It’s convenient, simple, and secure. To set up an eWallet please visit our schoolbook fair website at https://bit.ly/WESFAIR23. Parents, grandparents, and others can add money to your child's eWallet to purchase the books your child wants to read!
All for Books/Book Fairy: Donate to our All For Books fund which collects money to help get books in the hands of as many Weatherstone students as possible. If you would like to donate to the All for Books program for WES students who can’t afford to purchase a book at the book fair donations can be made to the following eWallet. https://bit.ly/BookFairy23
