The Scholastic Book Fair will be coming to Smith's Media Center on November 27 - December 1. 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.
Students can create a wishlist using the app in order to show you what books they would like to buy. You can also order from the app or from our online bookfair November 17 - December 5, 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 BOOKS ON SALE
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, Posted by John David Anderson, and Restart by Gordon Korman.
It's sometime difficult for students to get their hands on a Troybery book from our library because they are so popular--we appreciate you purchasing copies at our book fairs to enable your child to read more Troyberys! They make great holiday presents!
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 Smith Media Center!
