Scholastic Book Fair is March 21-23!

The Westminster Christian Scholastic Book Fair will be March 21-23! Your children will be given the opportunity to visit the Fair with their teachers and create a wish list and then they will have a second opportunity to visit and make any purchases. You can also visit the Fair with your child during the 30 minutes before or after school if you would like to shop as a family. Our Fair is also virtual, so you can check out what will be offered ahead of time and talk through choices with your child from home or even order from home. Simply follow this link to check it out.

This year we are once again offering the e-Wallet payment option. You set an amount your child can spend and the e-Wallet will work like a debit card, allowing your child to spend until the allotted amount is gone. Any money that is not used will never be pulled from your bank account. This is a great way to let your child shop without sending cash to school. Simply follow this link to sign up.

Thank you for your support through the Scholastic Book Fair each year. Our library is completely funded by your generosity through venues like this.
