Book Fair is Here
The countdown is on to the best week of the year – BOOK FAIR WEEK!! The Scholastic Book Fair will be returning to the Swiss Point library from December 1st through December 8th! Please visit our book fair homepage at https://www.scholastic.com/bf/switzerlandpointmiddle to preview the fair and set up an eWallet if needed. eWallets let students shop the fair directly – no cash or credit card necessary! However, we do still take cash, check, card, or Apple/Samsung pay. Please note that the materials available for purchase at the Book Fair were not selected by the St Johns County School District. We encourage parents to review their child’s wish list and have a conversation about what they are allowed to purchase at the book fair before sending money to make any purchases. Purchases can also be made online – all orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school! Please email [email protected] if you have any questions regarding the book fair.
