YCS Scholastic Book Fair and Family Fun Day!

Family Fun Day – Free Event – Saturday, November 16th 11am-3pm

Come to the book fair for holiday shopping, Thanksgiving crafts and enjoying hot cocoa.  

Student shopping days – November 18th – 22nd 

We are excited that our Annual Book Fair has moved to November! This change is great for many reasons:

  • Allows us to fill our teacher’s book wish lists and add to their classroom libraries early in the school year.
  • Shop for the holidays shopping while raising money for our amazing school programs.

Scholastic helps fund our school in 2 ways:

  • 25% of all purchases during the book fair (in-school and online) are returned to the PTA in cash.
  • We also receive “Scholastic Dollars.” With these dollars we can shop the Scholastic catalog. This year we purchased $1500 in books for our library. 

Ways to shop: eWallet, Cash, Credit Card, Online
eWallet – Using the online “eWallet” is the easiest way for your child to shop the fair.  Click-on or copy the link below to set-up your eWallet

Cash – place in an envelope with the teacher’s name and class number.

Credit Cards are accepted during the Family Event on Saturday, November 16th.

Online – November 10th – November 23rd, Enjoy extended hours and more titles!
