The SPS PTG provides a range of events for our students and families that are fun ways for us to gather as a community while attributing some toward our fundraising goal. Most of the events have volunteer opportunities available. Check the sign-up sheets to see what is available: Volunteer Opportunities

BOOK FAIR

The Book Fair is a fundraising event that encourages all students, K-8, to take an active interest in books. Our team of parent volunteers transforms our K3 classroom into a vibrant and compelling store where the students come to browse and make their selections. Parents are welcome to shop with their children in the evening during our annual Open House.

DATES:
Monday, January 27, 2020 - during school
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - during school & in the evening during Current Family Open House

All For the Books:
All students and parents are encouraged to donate as much as possible to the Scholastic All for Books program. All monies collected go directly to SPS for the purchase of classroom or library books, and Scholastic matches the donated amount through contributions to nonprofit organizations. A donation box will be available at the fair. Students may also donate any unused money or change from their own book purchases to help both SPS and children in need.

Pay-It-Forward Table:
Returning from last year, shoppers may place money in the jar on the table. Any children who do not have enough money for books are welcome to use the money from the jar.

Used Books:
Used books will be available for purchase at the Book Fair. ALL used books will be priced at $0.50. Please consider donating your gently used books. A box for donations will be available in the cafeteria Monday, January 21st through Friday, January 25th.

INTRODUCING—eWallet:
Scholastic is now offering a secure, digital payment option through their website. Parents can preload an “eWallet” for students shopping with their classes during school hours. No need to send cash or checks! Any unused eWallet balances at the end of the fair will be automatically returned to you! You can also use the site to donate to All For Books. Go to https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bookfairs/parent-how-it-works.html to set up your account!

Shop ONLINE:
Link will be available during event.

Special Instructions for Receiving Your Online Order:
All orders placed during this online sale will ship free of charge to St. Philip School. To ensure you receive your order, Scholastic requires you to enter the first name, last initial, and homeroom of the student who will bring home the order.
