Rippleside Book Fair
Our annual Rippleside Scholastic Book Fair is being held Monday, November 27 - Friday, December 1 in the Rippleside Media Center. The fair is open to the public from 8:15am-4:00pm. We have extended evening hours on Tuesday from 4:00-7:00pm. Students are given opportunities to shop at the book fair before and after school, as well as with their class throughout the week. You do not need to have an elementary student at Rippleside to shop at the book fair so spread the word to grandparents or friends who may want to come shop too! Book title selections range from preschool through adult ages. Online purchasing is also available and we accept cash, checks, and credit card payments at the book fair. The proceeds from the book fair go directly into purchasing new books for our elementary school library.
