Book Fair Coming Soon!!

 

From Mrs. Kelley….

The Middle School Library is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair December 9 through December 18! Be sure to join us for one of the following activities to encourage literacy in our community. All book fair profits go back to purchasing new books and equipment for the library to benefit WOMS students. Every student that shops the fair in person will be entered into a drawing. Prizes include a Moe’s Pizza and authentic Roughneck wear!

  • Lunch and Shop: Join your middle schooler for lunch in the library and shop the book fair from 11:00-11:30 December 9, 10, 11, 12, or 13. Visitors will check in at the office before being directed to the library.

 

  • Family Nights: While you are on campus for the Christmas band concert, bring the whole family to the library on December 17 between 5:30 PM and 8:00 PM. The first 150 shoppers will receive a complimentary cookie from Hard Bean! 

 

  • Student Shopping: Students can shop during the school day in enrichment or with permission from their reading teacher during reading class.

 

  • EWallet: Give your student a secure, cash-free way to shop the fair. Simply create a free account, preauthorize a spending limit, and have funds immediately available at www.scholastic.com/bf/woms. Scroll down to the “ewallet” section and click, “get started.”

 

  • Online Shopping: If you are unable to come to any of the open times, you have the opportunity to order your books online beginning December 4th by visiting www.scholastic.com/bf/woms.

In addition, students have made ornaments for the library Christmas Tree. Follow the instructions below. When you visit the library, you can see the tree come to life.

The movie is from 1999 and is rated PG-13. It is almost exactly like the original story from Washington Irving. More “spooky” than scary.
