Each year, many students look forward to going to the book fair, especially right before Christmas. It’s a great way to get gifts for other people in their family or for their friends.
This year’s winter book fair will be Monday, Dec. 3 to Friday, Dec. 7 and students will be able to purchase books from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“The Scholastic Flyer (is) available…in the library or from students’ language teacher,” said librarian Jennifer Cameron, said. “Titles include: the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Third Wheel, Haddix’s Caught, The Ghost of Graylock, The Mark of Athena, I Am a Seal Team Six Warrior to name a few.”
Approximately 120-150 book titles will be sold, but parents and students can go online and look and purchase an even greater variety. The link can be found on the CCJH home page. Scholastic will ship those books right to the school with the student’s name listed and they don’t even have to pay shipping.
There’s a large range of prices with some as little as $5, though others can get up to $15, depending on the book size.
“I think I will buy some,” eighth grader Jared Wenzelburger said. “(The book fair) always has numerous books I like and have been wanting to read.”
During the fair, a donation box will be set up for spare change. Scholastic will match the money donated and supply CCJH with books worth the combined amount. In addition, the company will give an equal amount to the Kids in Distress and Kids in Need charities in Cactus Canyon’s name.
