Tuesday at midnight is the last day for our online Book Fair.  Tuesday also kicks-off our in-school Book Fair.

Our in-school Book Fair opens in the library this Tuesday, May 28 at morning drop-off, 8:00am-8:50am, 10:00-1:00pm and 2:30-3:30pm.  It runs daily through Friday, May 31 at 3:30pm, with our big family event on Thursday afternoon, May 30.

Our Big Spring Extravaganza is Thursday, May 30 from 1:00pm – 5:30pm. Please invite family, friends and neighbors to join us for a delightful Spring Chorus Program at 1:00pm in the auditorium, followed by Art on the Lawn, tasty treats from our Bake Sale, great finds at our Lost & Found Reclaimed Jacket Sale, and our amazing Book Fair.

We have limited quantities of books and we will sell out of the most popular, so please join us on opening day, Tuesday, May 28 for the best selection.  Students are buzzing with excitement over the great selections.  This is also a fantastic opportunity to buy end-of-year teacher gifts and birthday gifts.

We will be offering Scholastic Book Fair Gift Certificates.  Gift Certificates are convenient and easy to use for parents, students, friends, and teachers, and are the perfect solution for parents and grandparents who are unable to attend our Book Fair.   You can print one out and send it to school with your child for him/her to shop, or to help a teacher with their wish list. (Checks are payable to Short Avenue Student Body.)

Students and parents can create Student Wish List and invite friends and family to shop with eCards. Furthermore, all purchases benefit our school and will help us achieve our Book Fair goal. All online orders ship for FREE to the school, after the Online Fair has ended. Don’t forget to look for your teacher’s (or your child’s next year teacher’s) online Wish List and add a book or two to your order for their classroom library. Click on the Classroom Wish List tab to see online participating teachers.
