Book Fair

November 8-12, 2021

It’s that time again – yes, BOOK FAIR TIME! Ashburton PTA will be holding the Fall 2021 Scholastic Book Fair from November 8-12, 2021. Here’s everything you need to know:

Students will shop with their teachers.

All students will have an opportunity to shop with their teachers during school hours – your teacher will let you know the day your child’s class is planning to attend.

Shop late on Wednesday, November 10.

The Book Fair will be open late on WEDNESDAY EVENING UNTIL 6:30PM so that parents may stop in and shop with their children (or own their own). Please enter through the back door of the school near the car loop lot – a volunteer will open the door for you.

We are (mostly) cashless.

We WILL accept cash on Thursday and Friday. But the EASIEST way to ensure that your young reader can get the books they want is by setting up a Scholastic eWallet account, which is basically a Scholastic debit account that students can use to make in-person purchases.

Yes, it sounds daunting but it’s not – if I can set it up, anyone can. To purchase books, your child just needs to share their name with the cashier.

Once you add money to the eWallet account you cannot be refunded. BUT any leftover eWallet funds will be converted to an e-card balance that you can use on Scholastic.com at any time or during the Spring Book Fair.

Don’t forget to factor in tax when trying to determine how much to include in the eWallet account.

You can also send a credit card with your child, if you’re brave enough to do so.

Shop Online November 8-21, 2021.

Can’t make it in or can’t find what you’re looking for on the shelves? You can still support the Book Fair by shopping online from November 8-21, 2021.

We Need Volunteers!

Please sign up here. We simply cannot do this without help.
