Summer Virtual Book Fair

Happy Summer Medina Students and Families!

Now that remote learning for the beginning of the school year has been confirmed, keeping up with our reading at home is more important than ever.  Scholastic is hosting an online book fair for our school for the ENTIRE summer, through September 4!  Keep your student’s home library well stocked with popular titles, new discoveries and a world of imagination and interesting facts, all while supporting our classroom libraries.  While we won’t be heading back right away, we will be there eventually, and it’s our goal to ensure that our teachers have as well-stocked classroom libraries as possible.

Please shop through this using this link

Any book purchase over $25 gives you free shipping directly to your home.

Thank you,

Rebecca Johnston and Shari Kauls, Book Fair Co-Chairs
