Book Fair is Here!

Dear KMS Families,

The “Catching Fire with Books!” Scholastic Book Fair is the week of November 18th- 22nd.  
Shopping is before school from 8:15 am – 8:50 am, during lunches, and scheduled Language Arts Times.  This is a great opportunity to pick up some new books before the holidays to keep or give as gifts.  

Win a Poster!  Anyone who visits the book fair can enter to win a poster.  There will be a separate drawing for each grade level on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  

Win a pair of tickets to the Catching Fire Premier!  Anyone who buys a book can enter into the raffle for a pair of movie tickets to the KMS Catching Fire preview on November 20th  at 7:00 pm.  The raffle drawing will be right before school ends on Wednesday.

All for Books Penny War for free popcorn:  
All for Books is a Scholastic Program.  The money that is raised will be given to the library to buy books from the fair and Scholastic will donate a book for every $1 raised to one of its charities.  There will be a separate jar for each grade level at the Book Fair.  The grade level that raises the most money wins popcorn at lunch!  This is a good time to clean out the cushions or under the car seats and donate that loose change.

We need your help!  Please sign up to volunteer at the book fair at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0E4EABAE2BA31-catching
Thank you so much for your support!
