Scholastic Book Fair and Evening Sales: October

The Scholastic book fair will be coming Oct 1-5th.  There will be lots of great new books including Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt, Dog Man Lord of the Fleas and Ranger in Time Hurrican Katrina Rescue.  Pre-order the latest Dairy of a Wimpy Kid-The Meltdown!

Why do I buy books for my kids? Because finding them a book they like lets them experience new and exciting things without restricting them to reality.  It sharpens their reading skills and imagination.  Also, they're quiet for as long as the book lasts. - Fourth Grade Parent

Our Evening Book Fair Night will be October 3rd from 5:30 - 7:30pm!  Come with your family to browse for books for your family reading time! Let your child practice his or her purchasing and money skills in our friendly environment!  Additional activities to be announced.

Sasquatch Reading Challenge Book Rescue

The annual Sasquatch Reading Challenge asks Third Grader students to read books from a wide variety of authors and genres. All the books were Sasquatch Nominees.  Each year the 3rd grade teachers select a total of 25 books to create a Sasquatch "Bingo Board".   This fun challenge gets students to read, think, and talk about books.  Students get small rewards for reading 5 in a row, 15 and completing all 25 books.  

Check out the list of books hereAre you done reading them? Are you looking to clear off your bookshelf to make room for new books?  Please take a look at home and see if you can help rescue/donate a few books for the 3rd Grade.  Books can be dropped off in the front office and placed in the Sasquatch Book Rescue Box.  Thank you for supporting our 3rd graders and helping them develop a love for reading!

If you have questions or need someone to pick up books from your house, please email CEthird@enataiptsa.org.
