Check out the Scholastic Book Fair site for BFES HERE.
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Beverly Farms and will transform our media center into our very own bookstore! There you will find hundreds of books from new and favorite authors, popular series, cool posters and school supplies! We’ll have books and gift items for everyone on your holiday gift list. Your child will visit the book fair with his or her class; we’re looking forward to seeing you (and your family and friends) there, too! Parents are encouraged to visit the fair with their child’s class, before or after school, and/or at one of our special events.
Questions? Please feel free to email one of us with any questions. Thank you for partnering with us in encouraging children to read. See you at the Book Fair! Gretchen Segal, Carey Beckley, and Elana Schanzer

PROGRAMS TO LOOK FOR AT THE FAIR:
Classroom Wish List Program
While at the Book Fair, please consider donating a book to your child’s classroom library. Access to vibrant, new books in classrooms means stronger reading skills! Your child’s teacher has carefully selected books to enhance the literacy environment in the classroom. Be sure to ask a book fair volunteer how to purchase a book for your child’s classroom library.
All For Books Program
Reading is the most important skill for students to develop to continue learning in school and in life. Unfortunately, not all students can afford the books they want. We have a chance to help. Through the All for Books Program, we will collect loose change and dollar bills to help buy books for our sister school, Maryvale Elementary.Be sure to ask a book fair volunteer for details.
