EAST JAY ELEMENTARY: We are excited to announce that the Scholastic Book Fair is coming to East Jay Elementary from October 12th-17th, during the school day. We are also extending the opportunity to purchase books on October 16th during Parent-Teacher conferences, from 3-6:00 PM. This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to discover new books and authors, and foster a love for reading. To make the shopping experience even easier, you can create an eWallet account. This will allow your child to make purchases without carrying cash or credit cards. To create an eWallet account, simply go to our Book Fair homepage: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/eastjaymiddleschool and click on the eWallet "Get Started" button. You will then be prompted to create an account or sign in if you already have one with Scholastic. Once your account is set up, look for the "Share" button to share your eWallet link with East Jay. Please note that I will not have access to your personal account information. We hope to see you and your child at the Book Fair. Thank you for supporting our school's love for reading!
