New Way to Shop Cashless at the Book Fair

Scholastic Fall Book Fair is coming up September 30-Oct 4th. We are excited to announce that Scholastic has come up with a secure, cashless way for our students to shop the book fair. Starting September 13th to October 3rd, you can create an eWallet with the amount you select as a spending limit for your student. Your spending limit will appear as a temporary hold (or pending charge) on your credit card. You will ONLY be charged for what is purchased and after the fair ends, the hold will expire and funds will be released back to your credit card. Watch a short video for more details.

Go here to create your eWallet account:
