Would you like to help out and make this Book Fair a success?  There are many opportunities to help out...set-up, cashier, or helping students shop. Check out the sign-up list and come join the fun!

eWallet, a secure, cash-free way to shop the book fair.  Simply set up an account and select your child’s spending limit.  Your credit card will only be charged for the amount spent, and after the book fair ends, the unused funds will be released back to your credit card.  Your child’s eWallet will be looked up at the fair – no need to send cash or checks to school with your child.  To get started, visit the school Book Fair homepage: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/horacewporterschool3

Gift Certificates for students or teachers:
Gift certificates are available for purchase in any amount.  Click here for the Gift Certificate Order Form.  Complete the form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher in an envelope addressed “Porter PTO – Book Fair.”  Please make checks payable to Horace Porter PTO.  The gift certificate will be distributed to your child or teacher the day he/she attends the book fair.

Online Book Fair:
You can also shop the online book fair.  There are many more great titles available.  The online fair runs from 11/3 through 11/16.  Visit http://www.scholastic.com/bf/horacewporterschool3 to start shopping!

Classroom Libraries:
Help build our classroom libraries by purchasing books and donating them to your child’s class through the Classroom Wish List program.  Look for the Teacher’s Wish box in the Library or purchase a gift certificate for a teacher.  An effective class-room library requires about 300 titles and should be refreshed by 10% each year.
