Throughout the week, all FMS students will have the opportunity to visit the book fair during reading or GOAL class.
The book fair also will be open each day before and after school from 8:10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The book fair will be open during parent/teacher conferences from 5-8:30 p.m. Tuesday and Nov. 7.
Parents and community members are welcome to visit the book fair and view the selection of books.
Anyone unable to attend can support the school by shopping online. All online book orders will be shipped free to FMS. The online fair opened Wednesday and continues through Nov. 19. The online fair can be accessed at: http://tinyurl.com/fmslibrary11.
FMS is participating in the “One for Books” program. Students and parents can donate loose change and bills to help raise money for the school library. Money raised will not only benefit the FMS library, but will benefit national organizations, such as Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, Kids in Distressed Situations and the National Center for Family Literacy. Scholastic will match all money raised at FMS for the national organizations.
Parents can contribute books to classroom libraries, too. A bookplate will be added to the inside front cover of every book donated to a classroom.
