Kerrisdale School is excited to present the in-person Scholastic Book Fair in the Library from Monday March 4th to Friday March 11th! This is an exciting time as it has been a tradition at Kerrisdale and many students enjoy the many new books in French and English that the book fair will display. This Book Fair provides Kerrisdale an opportunity to bring families, teachers, students, and books together while returning a portion of the profit to the school. (This is how we purchased our eBooks 4 years ago and how we continue to increase our online collection)! It’s a good way to raise funds while encouraging our students to read!
Thank you to Kerrisdale parents, Ms. Trisha Picker, Mr. Will McQueen, and Ms. Caroline Damnon, Negar Hooshmand, and Andrea Chivers for helping Ms. Bonilla set up the Fair!
Books make great presents. If you would like books to be put aside discreetly, to pick up before the Fair ends, just slip a note to us or tell one of the volunteers at the checkout. We will set up a Wish List for the teachers where you can purchase books for their classroom. Book plates provided!
Scholastic Book Fair hours for students only: Monday and Tuesday 9:00-3:03pm, Wednesdays and Thursday 9:00am-2:00pm and Friday from 9:00am-1:00pm.
Note that some classes will come twice to the fair, once to explore and the next one to purchase. Other students can come during recess or lunch.
Scholastic Book Fair hours for parents and families: Wednesday and Thursday after early dismissal. 2:00-4:00pm. There will be a limit of 45 people at one time. Please follow arrows from the front East door. Exit through the back of the library. Please keep your Book Fair visit within the library area ONLY.
Payment: We accept cash, cheque (made out to Kerrisdale Elementary), or credit card. Please send students with small bills or quarters, loonies, toonies!
Sold out books: Most of the books can be reordered should we run out of stock at the fair. Your child will receive them the following week after the book fair ends.
