Fall Book Fair: October 7-14, 2022

Support our school and help your child discover new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more!

Join your favorite Mustang at our biannual books and donuts event on Friday, October 14 from 8:30-9:30 am.

eWallets: Our Scholastic Book Fair offers a cash-free payment option called eWallet. It’s a convenient digital account that your child can use for shopping at our Fair. Each child will need a new eWallet for the Fall 2022 Book Fair. Scholastic closed all the previous Book Fair eWallet accounts and sent any remaining funds via gift certificate. These funds can be applied to your new Fall 2022 account.

You can also help build the PES library in our media center by donating to the school’s eWallet account. Note: the grade level and suggested amount are prepopulated. Giving for the PES eWallet will benefit all grades; any amount is welcome!

For families who prefer to use cash, credit card, or check payments, those are still available. All checks should be made out to the Potomac Elementary School PTA.

Volunteers: Volunteering is a great way to support the school and get to know other parents! As a thank you, all volunteers receive 10% off their purchases at the book fair.

Book Character Pumpkins: We received 110+ book character pumpkins to help decorate the book fair. Please take a moment while you are at the book fair to see the amazing creations!

If your child made a pumpkin, they will receive their prize during their class preview period on Friday, October 7th or Monday, October 10th.

After the book fair, children have the option to (1) bring their pumpkin home on Friday, October 14th — we encourage families to pick them up at the Donuts with Grown Ups event — or (2) allow their pumpkin to be displayed at the PES media center for the remainder of October.
