Rancho Santa Fe School Book Fair celebrates literacy


The annual Rancho Santa Fe School Book Fair is being held at R. Roger Rowe from Oct. 7-11. This event is open to the community, and all are cordially invited to participate in this week-long celebration of literacy with the students and staff.

The theme for this year’s Book Fair is “Reading Oasis: A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books!” Available will be the newest books from hundreds of publishers, offering a wide range of reading material for every reading level and area of interest, all at fantastic prices! Encouraging a child’s love of reading through fun and interactive activities and quality books is the goal of the Book Fair, and an exciting week of opportunities to purchase and win wonderful new books is in store.

Prior to the Fair, students will have an opportunity to preview the Book Fair selection and make wish lists. Teachers will also have wish list bins located in Room 204, a wonderful chance for parents and community members to provide valuable books for the classrooms.

During the week of the Book Fair, students will have an opportunity to win a favorite book through the Get Caught Reading Program. The Reading Mummy will be coming through the school campus to hand out free book vouchers to unsuspecting students who are reading.

Community members and parent volunteers are essential to making the Book Fair a success! Individuals are needed who are willing to share their experiences with students, and commit one-two hours of their time making a scheduled appearance to share stories and personal experiences. Volunteers are also needed throughout each sale day to help staff the registers. Community volunteers can contact Ross Hansen at 756-1141, ext. 201. Parents can sign up through the parent volunteer link on the school’s website:
