Scholastic Book Fair: May 21-24

We are excited to offer Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) at this week’s Scholastic Book Fair (Monday - Thursday) in the Library! This is a GREAT time to purchase “thank you" books for your child’s teacher too!  Shopping Hours will be:

  • Monday / Wednesday: 7:30 am – 3:00 pm
  • Tuesday / Thursday: 7:30 am – 4:00 pm.

Since MIS doesn’t profit from BOGO book fairs, we hope you will consider participating in “All for Books.” All you have to do is donate an additional dollar or round up your totals with the signed book slip that your child brings to class. Thank you.
