Summer Virtual Book Fair

Hello Medina Tiger Families! 

We know that this summer may look very different from any other we’ve had before, and many of us are having to get creative about how to fill our kids’ time. Creating a home library full of a variety of books provides an easy way for your student to spend free time and develop their reading skills.

This year, Scholastic is offering an Online Book Fair, in which all online book purchases totaling $25 or more are shipped directly to you, FREE OF CHARGE. An added bonus of purchasing through our online fair is that Scholastic is giving back 25% of sales in Scholastic Dollars. These dollars will be divided between our K-5 teachers to shop with Scholastic in order to replenish their classroom libraries and be ready to go when school resumes in person.

Thank you,

Rebecca Johnston and Shari Kauls, Book Fair Co-Chairs
