FMS Book Fair Jungle - February 5-10, 2020

The FMS Book Fair Jungle is Coming Your Way!

Why We Do It

The annual FMS Book Fair will take place from February 5-10, 2020. The book fair is an essential fundraiser for our school library program. Each year, the book fair provides our library with hundreds of exciting new books. In addition, funds raised are used to purchase new library materials, including audiobooks, digital subscriptions, fresh reads and curriculum materials. It is also a chance for students to add new books to their home libraries, and for classroom teachers to enrich their classroom libraries. It brings excitement about new books into our school, and that is palpable!

 

A Few Changes

This year, you will notice some changes to the book fair. This year's fair is a books only fair, with just a few exceptions. The school supplies and toy-like items sold in the past will NOT be available at this year's fair. We will have a huge selection of paperback and hardcover books, which is the primary focus of the fair. For those who are interested, there will be a small collection of non-book items such as journals, posters and bookmarks.

 

Book Coupons

This year, we will again provide a $2 book coupon for every single FMS student to be used to purchase a book at the fair. We will have many current titles available at a great discount - many popular titles cost just $1 or $2! The PTO is helping support the book coupon program this year through an enrichment grant - so thank you!

 

Volunteers Needed

We need your help to make this terrific event happen. Volunteers are needed to help set-up, run the cash register, and to help break down the fair as well. Please visit the Volunteer Signup Form to sign up for a slot (or two)! The form will require you to login with or create a Scholastic ID. This takes very little time, but keeps our volunteer signup form private, and has many great benefits like being completely ad-free and offering a chance to sign up for text message reminders for your slot. Volunteers are needed on the following dates: 2/4, 2/6, 2/7, 2/8, 2/10 (before and during the Family Dance) and 2/11.
