Book Fair, March 15-18

Book Fair

Calling all readers!  FSM’s Book Fair will be held during the week of Spring conferences, March 15-18, 2016.  We partner with the wonderful, locally-owned Red Balloon Bookshop for the books. The fair will have books for readers of all levels.  Selections include:  picture books, early readers, phonic readers, early chapter books, poetry books, fiction and nonfiction for readers of all ages, and a great selection of award winning books.

The annual Book Fair makes quality books available for purchase and raises money for the school.  Families will also have the opportunity to donate books for the classrooms.  For each book sold, 20% of the proceeds come back to Friends School.
