The Book Fair is Finally Here!

Posted Jan 29, 2012 | Category: Book Fair

This information was originally posted on January 29, 2012. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

Just a few reminders on how it works.  The students will shop the fair on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Your child will bring home a wish list for your approval the day that they shop.  You can choose to select some books off of the list and send in cash, check made out to Central PTO or credit card.   Please don’t forget to factor in the appropriate sales tax (9.25%) when totaling up your order.  Please return the list to school the day after your child brings it home.  If you choose not to make any purchases, there is no need to return the list.  We will then deliver the books to your child this week.  If you would rather view the books yourself, stop by anytime this week between 8:30am and 4pm Monday thru Thursday or during the Luau Social on Thursday from 6:30pm-8:30pm (Luau Social hours are 7-8:30pm but the book fair opens early for shopping).  We plan on having three cash registers going this year on Thursday evening to get those checkout lines moving!

Classroom Shopping Dates:

Monday, January 30th

Economos (AM)

Tuesday, January 31st

Economos (PM)

Wednesday, February 1st


There will be wish list baskets for each teacher at the book fair.  These are filled with books that the teachers have put on their wish list for use in their classrooms.  You are welcome to purchase a gift certificate for a teacher by indicating so and including the appropriate amount when sending in your child’s approved wish list.  They can use this to purchase books from their wish list basket.  You are also welcome to come in yourself during fair hours and pick a book from the basket and fill in a gift sticker from your child that will be placed in the front of the book.  The baskets are quickly emptied the evening of the Luau Social so shop early if you would like to purchase something for a teacher!


Looking forward to another great book fair!  Thank you in advance for your support.  Please contact Amy Jacksic at pres-amy@centralptonews.org with any questions.
