The Book Fair is This Week! Monday-Thursday, April 18-21 And Join Doree for Family Night: Tuesday, April 19, 6-8 pm

Get ready for an exciting week at Duveneck! The library will be transformed into our very own Scholastic Book Fair, where students can browse and shop for books Monday-Thursday during lunch, after school, as well as during specially scheduled times with their class and teacher. Parents can also shop before and after school. This is a highlight of the year for the kids, as well as a significant fundraiser for our school: 25% of purchases will go to the Duveneck PTA!

If your children would like to purchase books this week, please be sure to send them to school with cash or set up a Scholastic eWallet for them. The class with the most eWallet signups will receive a book basket for their classroom library. Here is how to create your Book Fair eWallet:

  1. Go to our Book Fair homepage
  2. Click on eWallet “GET STARTED” and then “Create eWallet”
  3. Sign in or create an account (if you do not have one already with Scholastic)
  4. Fill in your child’s First Name & Last Name, as well as Teacher’s Last Name (PENG) and choose Grade 5 for Grade.
  5. Once you create your eWallet account, you can add funds and/or invite family and friends to contribute to it.
  6. You can print out the barcode after funding the eWallet so they can bring it to the Book Fair or simply check out books using their names.
  7. Any unused funds can be spent at The Scholastic Store Online or to fund a future eWallet.

You can also help fund book scholarships for students and teachers’ classroom libraries. You can simply donate to the eWallet for Scholarship and teachers.* (*Please ignore that it says “12th Grade”. The grade info is required while setting up the eWallet. We used “12th Grade” to show this is a special eWallet for our school.) 

Book scholarships are available; please contact Beth in the front office for more information (ehedge@pausd.org).
