Book Fair


Southmont's next Book Fair will run from Friday, February 17th until Friday, February 24th in the media center. The book fair will be open from 8:00-3:00 each day (February 24th- until 11:30). Students will participate in fun activities that revolve around our Book Fair theme. They may dress as a Reading Ranger on Tuesday, February 21st. Parents are invited to bring your child after school on that day. The Book Fair will remain open until 5:00 pm as this is Parent Night at Southmont. Students attending the Book Fair on Parent Night will have an opportunity to win a free book and win a free book for their class by having a special drawing. Be there so you can put your name in the drawing! Please join us to celebrate literacy and learning!

Your child will preview the book fair selections on Friday at the beginning of the fair and be given an opportunity to fill out a wish list. Please spend some time with your student, looking at the included book list and his/her wish list. Then visit our fair in person to make your selections or send a list of books to purchase and money with your child. All book fair money must be sent in an envelope marked “BOOK FAIR.” We are required to add sales tax to the purchase price.

Parents, grandparents and other special friends are invited to eat lunch with their students and attend the book fair after lunch on any day during the book fair.

At the book fair, you can also help increase your child’s classroom library. You are invited to participate in the Classroom Wish List program by selecting one or more Book Wish Cards from the display at the book fair. The titles are hand picked by each teacher for use in their classrooms. You may also make a book donation for our media center in honor of your student(s) or a teacher.

Scholastic is once again offering online ordering before, during and after the book fair. You can access our own Southmont Elementary book fair homepage at and choose books from a greater selection than is available in the media center.You can charge your selections (including sales tax) and all orders will ship together to the school via UPS after the online fair ends. Your books will arrive at Southmont within 5-7 business days after the online fair end date with no shipping charges. The school will receive credit for your online purchases.

We appreciate your dedication to creating lifelong readers and your willingness to help our school by supporting the book fair. See you at the Book Fair!
