We will keep the following hours on campus for the book fair this year:

8:30-12:00 Open (we will not be open before school hours as I did not want to compete with students who have signed up for classes, otherwise students need to be in the gym/auditorium for teachers to pick up so that class may begin on time)

12:00-12:30 Closed to eat lunch (exception will be on Thursday when parents will be here for Thanksgiving lunches)

12:30-2:30 Open

2:30-3:15 Closed to restock and for PK/K to have private shopping

3:15-4:30 Open, but students should be with an adult to shop after school that way there aren’t any missed buses, parents waiting to pick up out front in the circle drive, or parent pick up from after school…this way no one is “missing” when a parent arrives to get their child. You are welcome to park on the street or in the parking lot to come back in and shop with your child. After school has talked to me and they may escort small groups of students to the book fair in the afternoons but students are required to go there and sign in first and then come with the after school teacher and/or their parent.

Open Late tomorrow night, Tuesday Nov. 13, from 5:30-7:30 for the PTA meeting!

If you are unable to attend our physical fair on campus then you can shop virtually at our online book fair located at the following address: http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/hsmalibrary Shipping is free and to the school. When I see that you have made a purchase then I will contact you when it arrives and about how you want to pick it up…we can be sneaky if needed, in case you are holiday shopping!! The online fair will run until the 23rd (Black Friday!!). Happy Shopping and thanks for your support of our school library!
