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!

Welcome to the 2017/18 School Year!


Book exchange started this week in the Pilgrim Wood Library.  I love to see the excitement as students look for their favourite books or discover new books.  Books are due two weeks after the checkout date, but many students return their books after one week so they can sign out new books.

Here is the weekly book exchange schedule for students in grades K - 5/6:


Open Space for Grades 6 to 8 

Students in grades 6 to 8 can exchange their books during Open Space.  Open Space happens during period 5 every day.  Students must first ask their teacher for a note in order to come to Open Space.
