This year the ARS Scholastic Book Fair will be all virtual and runs May 3 - 16!  See this instructional video to learn how the virtual fair works!  It allows you to "walk" through the book fair just like you would in person, browsing books as you go.  Orders will ship straight to your home.  See here for all of the details!  Log in here to place your order!  
 
At our typical in person Scholastic book fair the teachers would have wish lists of books families could purchase for the teacher's classrooms. This year we have created a sign up genius with book wish. Please see the sign up genius link for more information if interested. Thank you!
