Fundraisers & Donations

Welcome to our Scholastic Book Fair!

Tuesday March 7th - March 10th

What? 

Two ways to purchase items: 

  1. Student purchases during school and family purchases during parent conferences for students, please help your child by sending their money in a baggie or envelope with their first and last name on it in their backpack, not on their person.  Wondering how much things cost?  The average book is $8.00 to $17.00 and bookmarks/erasers/pencils/gadgets start at .50 and go up to about $15.00 for diaries. 
  1. On-line for parents or other family members.  No shipping charges, items will be delivered to the school and will be sent home with your child in sealed non see through packaging the week following the book fair. Please note that most items other than books such as pencils/erasers/posters/gadgets will not be available for on-line purchase.  For those wishing to surprise their child with purchases or gift them at a later date, please e-mail our school librarian at blcarde@cbe.ab.ca and she will arrange for you to pick up your order in the office.
