    The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming!

    The Book Fair will be at Washington from Monday November  4th  – Thursday November 7th and will be held during Conferences in the library. This Book Fair has an Arctic theme, so cozy up with some new books! Book Fair hours are as follows: 
    Tuesday November 5 – 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM
    Wednesday November 6 – 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM
    Thursday November 7 – 7:30 AM – 11:00 AM

    New this year is the Book Fair eWallet: With Book Fair eWallet, a safe and convenient digital payment account, your student can shop the Fair cash-free! Just load the card with the desired amount you wish your child to spend, send them to the book fair, and let them spend their limit. Very similar to a gift card, but specifically for Scholastic Book Fairs. Visit the eWallet Home Page for more information.
