We’re encouraging families to use the Scholastic Book Fair eWallet. The eWallet is a safe and secure alternative to cash. You can create a free account and add funds that will allow your child to select books. When they come to the fair, we’ll look up their eWallet. The eWallet is a great alternative to cash.

Students can bring their Grandparents’ and Special Friends to shop the Book Fair when they visit PPE on Thursday, April 7th and Friday, April 8th.
If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will benefit our school as well.
