Scholastic Book Fair at FMS

Fairfield Middle School will host a Scholastic Book Fair Monday through Nov. 9.

Throughout the week, all FMS students will have the opportunity to visit the book fair during reading or GOAL class. It also will be open each day before and after school.

The book fair will be open 5-8:30 p.m. during parent-teacher conferences Tuesday and Nov. 9.

Those unable to attend can help support FMS by shopping online. All online book orders will be shipped free to FMS. The online fair will be open from until Nov. 17 at:

FMS is participating in the ?One for Books? program during the book fair. Students and parents can donate loose change and bills to help raise money for the school library. Money raised will not only benefit the FMS library, but will benefit national organizations such as Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, Kids in Distressed Situations and the National Center for Family Literacy. Scholastic will match all money raised at FMS for the national organizations.

Parents can contribute books to classroom libraries, too. A bookplate will be added to the inside front cover of every book donated to classrooms.

?Please come to the book fair and view the wonderful selection of books,? invited Dee Ann Lantz, FMS librarian. ?Many times there are best sellers for adults as well as many books for students,? she added.
