Fundraisers & Donations

Scholastic Book Fairs

One of the ways we get children and the community excited about reading at Braeside School is by hosting regular Scholastic Book Fairs. Scholastic Canada is one of the country's leading publishers and distributors of children's books and educational materials in both official languages. Scholastic Book Fairs bring the latest and greatest children's books right to our school! Every book purchased at a Scholastic Book Fair helps put great new books and teachers' resources in our students' classrooms and our school's own library.

Book Fairs are also a great time for parents to volunteer and help us with running this busy event. We encourage you to contact our office if you are able to help. Thank you in advance for your time and effort.

RT @UsihChristopher: Student health is more important than perfect attendance and families are the ultimate decision makers when it comes to whether students attend school or not. If your child will not be attending, please notify the school and the absence will be excused. Thank you!
