Book Fairs and Author Visits

Book Fairs

Book fairs are much more than a fundraiser… the focus is happy little faces and seeing how excited our kids get about books. This is also an opportunity to teach them about money management. We usually host two Book fairs a year, one in the fall, and one in the spring. The fall book fair is sponsored by the school, while the spring book fair is sponsored by the PTA.

The 2015-2016 Fall Book Fair will be held on October 26 – October 30th.   The French Book Fair will be held in the spring.

For more information or to help with the book fairs, please contact Amy Carey abc_isri@yahoo.com or Lisa Fraser coreylisa2002@yahoo.com. Questions regarding the French Book Fair please contact Paige Himesphimes6@verizon.net.

Author Visits:

Several times a year the PTA will bring an author to the school to meet the students and read their books in an assembly format.  The students love the opportunity to meet the authors and ask questions.  Families also have the option of purchasing a signed book from the author for their home library.  The PTA is thrilled to be able to offer the students of Kent Gardens exposure to a variety of authors throughout the year.
