Tarkio Elementary School is hosting the Schol-astic Book Fair through Friday, September 28. Enchanted Forest Book Fair is the theme for the Fall 2018 Book Fair. This is an event geared to excite children about reading and learning. The fair is open to Tarkio and the surrounding community.
The book fair helps the school promote learning while raising money to purchase new books and materials for the library. So far, money raised at the book fair has been used to purchase a story time rug, paperback rack, beanbag chairs, laser printer, audiobooks, book displays, a magazine rack, children’s encyclopedias, die-cut ma-chine, student chairs, middle grades reading corner and to rejuvenate the circulation desk in the library! Funds have also been instrumental in providing field trip experiences to children meeting the yearly Mark Twain Ultimate Reading Challenge, as well as, incentives for quarterly awards and schoolwide reading celebrations. Along with these neat things, the library can purchase books at half the retail cost and earn product vouchers for use in the Scholastic catalog as a reward for participation in book fair promotions and meeting sales goals.
The book fair will offer popular books and educational products for all ages, including the newest titles from more than 150 publishers. All are offered at reasonable prices, so that students can choose books that appeal to their personal interests and parents can add to home libraries. The fair is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Extended Family Event hours will be Thursday, September 27, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. All Tarkio Elementary students will have a chance to visit the book fair and make their own wish lists prior to the Thursday family event.
