Skyridge Admin Team
Our Skyridge library is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair and funds raised will go back into the library to provide books and online resources for our students. Online purchasing is a new option this year with a vast selection of books. There are countless book choices for everyone in the family. The online purchase option is now active at http://onlinebookfairs.scholastic.com/default.aspx?f=3085318 and continues until June 12. Books purchased online are sent to our school for free. When checking out, you will notice the shipping charge is zero. The “traditional” fair starts on June 8 and runs through June 18.
Come and let our talented cast entertain you!
