Every year we host two Scholastic Book Fairs in the school library.
These book fairs offer a wide variety of books for all reading levels
and interests. The proceeds from our book fair sales are invested back
into Candalaria. For example, this year every student in every classroom
received a subscription for Scholastic News, Dyna Math or Storyworks.
In past years, we have purchased smart boards and other classroom
Our Spring Book Fair
is scheduled for May 1-5. Each day the fair is open
before school 8:30-9:05 am and after school 3:30-4:30 pm. We will also be
open during Ice Cream and the Arts on Thursday the 4th from 6-8 pm.
Teacher bins are an important feature of our Candalaria book fairs. The
bins contain books selected by your child's teacher that they would like in
their classroom library. If you purchase a book for a teacher, you
receive a 20% discount on the purchase.
If you don't know what books to buy for your child, our teachers also select
books they recommend. Look for signs on the shelves that say
"teacher pick" and you will know which teacher has made the
recommendation. These teacher picks are usually the first to sell out
at our fairs.
Thank you for your support of our book fair!
