The Scholastic Book Fair will be coming to Boulan's Media Center on October 16-20. With the theme of Wild, Wild West Book Fair: Readers Wanted, our library will be transformed into the wild west with decorations from the Troy High National Art Honor Society students.
Your child will be receiving a parent letter and a sneak peek pamphlet about the hot items at the book fair. Or, you can also see the letter here. Check the schedule to see which day your child will be attending the fair.
use the scholastic book fair app
Be sure to load the book fair app on your phone or on your child's iPad! This free app will give you access to videos and podcasts about the books that will be at the fair, along with summaries, reading levels, and prices. Shop the fair using the pamphlet and the app with your child before you go!
Students can create a wishlist using the app in order to show you what books they would like to buy. Then, they can send you the list to use to shop the book fair during conferences on October 18!! We will be open during afternoon and evening conferences.
You can also order from the app or from our online bookfair October 8-25, which has even more options available for purchase! Shipping is free, and your purchases will arrive at school in 2-3 weeks. Mrs. Chatel will contact you for pick up.
troybery and wimpy kid books on sale
The new Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway will be available for paid PRE-ORDER at the book fair for $8.99 plus tax and free shipping! Mrs. Chatel will have the copies available in the week following the book's release on November 7.
We have released a list of potential Troybery nominees, and students are helping to narrow the list down to the top ten. The following potential Troybery books might be at our book fair, depending on availability: Refugee by Alan Gratz, The Harlem Charade by Natasha Tarpley, Scar Island by Dan Geimhart, or Posted by John David Anderson.
However, there may be books at the fair that are not on the Troybery list that should be!! If your child finds a book at the fair published in 2017 that s/he thinks should be a Troybery nominee, s/he can submit the title here.
teacher wish lists
Would you like to honor your child's teacher by purchasing a book as a gift off the teacher's wish list? We will have a display listing the books at the book fair that each teacher would like to have in his/her classroom library. This would be a wonderful holiday gift for your child's teacher!
Thank you for your support of reading and the Boulan Media Center!
