10th Annual Book Fair!
The annual Book Fair, a beloved Blue School tradition, will take place Tuesday, November 28th through Friday, December 1st in the ground floor activities space.
Book Fair will be open:
- Tuesday 8:00 am - 5:30 pm
- Wednesday 8:00 am to 8:30 pm - wine, cheese and snacks starting at 5:45 pm (before our evening speaker)
- Thursday 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
- Friday 8:00 am to closing at 1 pm
Last year, all children (from the 4/5s classes and up) were able to pick out $25 worth of books with their class at the Book Fair. If you are able, purchase your child/children's $25 allowance below. In addition, we encourage you to make a donation in the amount of $25, $50, $75 or $100 which will go towards stocking teacher's libraries, fulfilling teacher book lists and providing books for children whose families aren’t able to contribute.
Book fair donations are tax deductible. A donation to the Book Fair does not count toward participation in the Annual Fund. If you have not yet donated to the annual fund, and would like to, click here.
An Evening at The Book Fair
Please join the FA for an evening with Dr. Alan Schlecter, co-author of U Thrive: How to Succeed in College (and Life) on Wednesday, November 29 at 5:45 pm.
Every year, almost 4,000,000 students begin their freshman year at colleges and universities nationwide. Most of them will sleep less and stress out a whole lot more. By the end of the year, 30% of those freshmen will have dropped out. For many, the unforeseen demands of college life are so overwhelming that “the best four years of your life” can start to feel like the worst.
Enter Daniel Lerner and Dr. Alan Schlechter, ready to teach students how to not only survive college, but flourish in it. Filled with fascinating science, real-life stories, and tips for building positive lifelong habits, U Thrive addresses the opportunities and challenges every undergrad will face — from finding a passion to dealing with nightmarish roommates and surviving finals week. Engaging and hilarious, U Thrive will help students grow into the happy, successful alums they all deserve to be.
Guests will have an opportunity for Dr. Schlecter to sign their book at the conclusion of the evening. Wine and cheese will be served.
