Fry's Book Fair is HERE! The book fair will be in our Library Media Center during the week of November 4-8. We will be open before and after school. Students and families are invited to shop during the following days and times. If you were to come during school hours, please remember to park in the parking lot and sign in at the office before heading to the book fair.

On Monday, Nov. 4, students will be able to visit the book fair and fill out a "Wish List." Please look for these "Wish Lists" in backpacks, as they will be useful for locating the books you may be interested in purchasing for your child. "Teacher Wish Lists" will also be available at the book fair, if you would like to purchase a book for their classroom library.

If you plan to allow your child to shop on their own and send money with your child for the book fair, please include 7.75% sales tax. You might also choose to use the e-Wallet, if so, just send a note that says you’ve added funds. To create an account and add money to an eWallet visit: scholastic.com/fair]scholastic.com/fair.
Checks may also be sent and made payable to Fry Elementary. Please include your phone number on all checks.

You also have the option to purchase books from our Online Book Fair open during Oct. 30-Nov. 12 and have them sent to school - free shipping and our school will receive a percentage of the profit! If you would like to save any of these items as gifts for your child, please email michelle_loughran@ipsd.org and we will save them for you to pick up here at school. Please be aware, that books listed on the flyer or on Wish Lists might become unavailable at the time you visit the fair, but should still be available online.

Here is the link to our Online Book Fair website:.
