“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.” –Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
The Book Fair is coming! Get ready for an exciting book shopping experience right in our own PS 217 Library. As per our long time tradition, during the Parent Teacher Conferences week we are offering you and your children the opportunity to shop for new books that your children want to read. Not only that you build your home library this way, but you also support our school.
Each class will be scheduled to come to the Book Fair with their teacher, so please keep an eye on any announcement going home regarding the exact day and time. A NEW payment feature is offered for the first time for your convenience. Our book fair has a new digital payment option, called E-Wallet. If you fear that your child might lose the cash you hand them on the day of their classroom visit to the fair, you can set up an account and have funds immediately available for your child to shop the Book Fair. Safe and secure. Top get started, visit our online PS 217 Scholastic Book Fair homepage. Questions about e-Wallet? Contact Mara Dubovici (LDubovici@schools.nyc.gov / 718.434.6960 x1)
