Scholastic Book Fair

Book Fair is THIS WEEK! PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS INFO AS IT IS SPECIFIC TO VOLUNTEERING, FAIR HOURS AND THE RULES OF SHOPPING AT BOOK FAIR

We still have a need for volunteers. As of Tuesday (12/3) night, we still need a shopping assistant on Thursday morning and one more person on Friday for tear down. Please use this link to sign up. https://volunteer.scholastic.com/#/signup/U3wGFr9T0  We absolutely need your help! 

We suggest you set up an eWallet for your student instead of sending them to school with cash!!  eWallet is new this year, and there is no charge to set it up. Simply create an account and authorize a spending limit on your credit card. You must set up an account for each student. Additional funds can be added at any time and purchases can be tracked. You are only charged for what is purchased (up to the spending limit). Visit our webpage https://www.scholastic.com/bf/medina and select the “get started” button to sign up. 

Book Fair Shopping Hours

Tuesday 12/3: 7:50 am to 2:50 pm
Wednesday 12/5: 7:50 am to 12:40 pm and 6:00 to 8:00 pm (Family Night)
Thursday 12/5: 7:50 am to 2:50 pm

To help the event run smoothly, we kindly ask that you note the following:

- Please discuss with your child that there is NO borrowing or sharing of money.

- Once an item is purchased, there are NO refunds. If there is a serious issue that requires a refund, please reach out to your book fair co-chairs (bookfair@medinapta.org) or the cashiers immediately.

- If you send your child to school with money, please place it in a zip-top bag or envelope labeled with the child’s name and teacher.

- You may send a pre-written check with your student. It should be made out to the Medina PTA with the amount they may spend filled out as well. Change will be given if necessary.

- Please DO NOT send credit cards with your child. We will not accept them without a parent present to sign for the purchase. We suggest you set up an eWallet account (as noted above) instead.

- Students should shop for items at the Book Fair during their regular class time. Students will also have access during specified recess times for their grade/class, depending on the day. However, recess time is chaotic, and the best time for students to shop is during their regular class library time or after school.

    • For the first day of the Book Fair, only books will be sold. Trinkets and posters will be available on Family Night and on Thursday on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Most teachers will have Wish Lists of titles they would like to add to their classroom libraries.
    • Parents are welcome to shop at the Book Fair throughout the day. All proceeds from the Book Fair directly benefit our school library, as we use the funds raised to purchase library materials throughout the year.

Our deepest thanks to our volunteers for staffing the Book Fair. This well-loved annual event would not happen without your dedication and support.

Mrs. McClelland and Mrs. Mitchell, your librarians, along with Rebecca Johnston and Shari Kauls, your Book Fair Chairpersons
