This year, our in-school Book Fair begins on November 10th, but you can begin your book shopping on November 1st, at the Online Book Fair. Visit the Book Fair Homepage at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/merion and click on the Shop Now button. Online shopping is available from November 1st until November 21st.
You can create wish lists and invite friends and family to shop with eCards. Best of all, purchases benefit our school and will help us achieve our Book Fair goal. All online orders ship for FREE to the school, after the Online Fair has ended.
Don’t forget to look for your teacher’s online Wish List starting November 1st, and add a book or two to your order for their classroom library. Click on the Classroom Wish List tab to see if your teacher is participating.
Benefits of Online Shopping:
Decorate a shield to be exposed at the book fair:
A blank shield for your child to decorate has been sent home in their Thursday folder. You can click here for an additional blank one if needed. We are planning to use the shields to help decorate our book fair. Children who return a decorated shield will be entered in a grade level drawing. The winners will receive a book of their choice worth up to $10.00.
