Scholastic Book Fair is Here!

The Scholastic Book Fair is back, bigger and better than ever!

This year the Book Fair is in December to allow students an opportunity to shop for both themselves and for gifts for others such as siblings, parents, grandparents, and teachers.
The teachers have created wish lists of books they would like for their classrooms. These lists are displayed at the Book Fair so that students may purchase the books as gifts for their teachers if they wish.

If you and/or your child wish to purchase Book Fair items you can do one of the following:

1. Send cash (in an envelope) or cheque (payable to Pilgrim Wood Public School) with your child on Tuesday, Dec.12th (grades 1-4) or Wednesday, Dec. 13th (grades 5-8).

2. Visit the Book Fair from 5:00 - 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 14th, which is the evening of the PW Holiday Concert.


For every $10 spent at the Book Fair, Pilgrim Wood gets back $6 in profits.


THANK YOU for supporting this PW Library fundraising event!
