Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our Fall Scholastic Book Fair will begin on Friday November 18th and end on Friday November 25th, 2016. The Book Fair will be primarily a French Fair, however, there will be English books available for students in grades 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
Students will have an opportunity to preview the books at the fair with their classroom teacher and create a “Wish List” to bring home. Students will be able to purchase books during the school day according to a pre-set schedule. In order to avoid lost money, it is recommended that parents send a cheque (payable to Ventura Park PS) instead of cash with their child. I encourage parents to discuss the purchase(s) that their child is intending to make in order to avoid the purchase of a non-parent approved item (poster, pens, markers, erasers etc.); sending the name of the item(s) you wish your child to purchase, is very helpful. The Book Fair will be open during interviews on Thursday November 24th (3:30 pm – 8:00 pm) and Friday November 25th (9:00 am – 12:00 noon).
Being a part of this special event is easier than you think and there are many ways to volunteer, including:
- Helping to set-up and create book displays before the fair begins
- Greeting students, teachers and parents at the fair
- Working at our cashier table or working at our pre-paid re-order table
- Helping students and parents select the “just right” book
- Packing up the books at the end of the fair
