Book Fairs are held in the fall and spring of each school year. The fairs run a full week and feature select books for Kindergarten through 3rd Grade.
Parents, Grandparents and TES families are welcome to shop and are required to check in at the main office.
Library Visits – Students will visit the Book Fair as a class during their regularly scheduled library time. The purpose of the visit is to encourage and provide a positive and independent decision-making experience for each child. Whether purchasing books or simply window shopping, parents are encouraged to prepare their child accordingly. Suggesting books (i.e. Breakfast & Books visit), writing the titles down, providing appropriate funds or asking your child to make a wish list are all helpful ways to ensure a favorable and fun experience.
Teacher’s Picks and Wish List – Want to help populate your child’s class library? Be sure to ask Book Fair/PTO staff for your teacher’s wish list. Teachers gleefully peruse the book fair selections for the year’s “hot picks” and “top sellers” to add to their reading programs. Join in the fun and surprise your teacher with a donation you choose from their list. Gift labels are provided
Picture books, Early Readers and Chapter books are displayed for easy reference and real time purchase. Families and TES students can visit the fair throughout the week in several ways:
Breakfast & Books – During the Fall Book Fair, TES PTO volunteers setup and arrange for an early morning light breakfast snack for TES students and their parents.
*Breakfast and Books
The Breakfast & Books visit allows for parents and grandparents to visit the fair and participate in their child’s book fair purchases. Purchases can be made that morning, on the spot. It is also a great way to prepare your child or select a book to be purchased by your child during their scheduled library class visit. And of course, sweetening things up are the courtesy breakfast treats and goodies. Plan on spending some sit-down time over a muffin, yogurt or fruit snacks and talking…books!
NOTE: Parking for Breakfast & Books is available in the TES Bus Loop from 7:15am – 8:15am. Please have vehicle moved by 8:15am to prepare for the arrival of School Buses and students.
TES/PTO Friday Movie Night
Under the starry sky and weather permitting, TES families come together for PTO’s version of a drive-in movie. Festivities begin shortly after the end of the school day and conclude with sleepy-eyed children and movie credits. The TES playground buzzes early with children challenging their inner ninja jumping, climbing and swinging to the victory of their happy hearts.
The two-week fundraiser is curriculum-based, helping to engage students by providing them an opportunity to support their school while expanding their knowledge by completing take-home worksheets focusing on key areas including Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
