Book Fair 2015

Book Fair 2015

Book Fair

This beloved Blue School tradition will take place Tuesday, November 29th, through Friday, December 2nd at 1:00 in the ground floor activities space. The fair will open at 8:00 am every morning and close at 5:30 each day so families can visit together before and after school. 

Last year we spent a week immersed in books and talk about books. Families contributed to the school and went home with books to keep them entertained and informed for the year that followed. Our community raised more than $6,000 for teachers’ book needs, and more than $4,000 was raised for Blue School books (after all teacher books were purchased and book fair expenses were accounted for). 

This year we’re re-envisioning Book Fair to make literacy feel as inclusive as possible to all families, while at the same time raising money to support Blue School and its teachers.  We’ve also simplified the process to make giving as simple as possible - we hope you’ll help make Book Fair an even bigger success than last year!
