Wanamaker Elementary


Used Book Fair

during Field Day, Wanamaker Elementary is holding a "used book fair" in the library.

During the week of May 16, each child may bring up to three gently used books from home. The student council will collect these books from the classrooms and record the number of books each student brings, up to three. Students may bring more than three books if they choose; however, these books will be considered donations to the fair and appreciated greatly. We are especially on the lookout for higher-level chapter books.

Parents, please check the books your children bring to school to ensure they are age appropriate and ones you are willing to exchange.

On , each class will visit the library to choose “new to me” books. Our goal is to have enough books that all students may have at least one “new” book to take home for the summer. We hope to promote summer reading and provide another fun activity during Field Day.
