COMING UP, AND THANK YOU...
FALL SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR – SAVE THE DATE, Nov. 19–22
Woodlawn will be hosting its Scholastic Book Fair this fall in the Learning Center. Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings kids the books they want to read. We'll receive a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level and all purchases benefit our school!
Our ONLINE SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR will be open 24/7 from NOV. 13–26, 2019. Parents, teachers, and students who cannot attend the book fair still can order through our online fair during these dates. We still receive credit for these online purchases and all purchases are delivered to the school.
NEW THIS YEAR: E-WALLET– a prepay option for students. Give your child a secure, cash-free way to shop the Book Fair. Simply create an account, preauthorize a spending limit, and have funds immediately available. Set up an account for each child now through Nov. 22.
