The 2012 Book Fair is almost here! Our Scholastic Book Fair theme – Book Fair Luau! It’s a Reading Celebration! – is part of an exciting reading event that brings to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. Like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
This year we will be hosting an Online Book Fair that will open the week before the fair and continue for one week after the fair. As always, we will have extended evening hours during our Family Night, and additional Saturday hours during our annual Charter Day School Spring Festival. With all these options, every student is sure to have the opportunity to purchase a new book!
In order to ensure that our Book Fair runs smoothly, we are asking for parent volunteers to help work the fair during the school day. As a volunteer, you will be responsible for assisting parents and students in locating books, keeping the fair neat and clean, and assisting the cashiers. Volunteers are needed daily, and will be scheduled in two-hour time blocks. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Book Fair connects students with books at affordable prices, and makes reading a positive experience. We hope that this year’s fair will be just as successful as last year in providing us with the opportunity to purchase more books for our ever growing school library.

I look forward to seeing you at the fair!
