BMS Bookfair!

Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them on their journey to becoming lifelong readers. AND—as always—every purchase at the Fair benefits our school.    

Here’s what you need to know about the big event, which will take place from November 30 to December 8 in the BMS Library. Hours are 8:00-3:45. On Monday, December 4, the Book Fair will be open until 6 p.m. The Book Fair will close at 11:20 a.m. on Friday, December 8. 

Say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy. 

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Book Fair online. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school. 

We will be helping several BMS students buy a book through our All for Books program. If you would like to contribute a few dollars toward this program, you may use this link to our school’s eWallet account. 

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:
