PPE Scholastic Book Fair (October 31st-November 4th) 

It’s BACK! Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place in the library from Monday October 31 thru Friday, November 4.  First Day of book fair falling on Halloween…it’s the stuff childhood dreams are made of! The fair will be open for families to shop during Percy’s Reading Party on Wednesday, November 2. We still need a few more volunteers. If you are interested, please sign-up HERE. And thank-you!!!

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. Again, the eWallet is a great alternative to cash. 

Visit our book fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/percypriestelemschool

Students can bring their grandparents’ and special friends to shop the book fair when they visit PPE on Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th.

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.

Thank-you for your help with this year’s fair! Don’t hesitate to email Miss Stuart with further questions. emily.stuart@mnps.org

 

“Let children have tales of the imagination, scenes laid in other lands and other times; heroic adventures, hairbreadth escapes, delicious fairy tales, even where it is all impossible, and they know it, and yet they believe.” ~ Charlotte Mason

MISSON

To give children a lifelong love of reading and learning through sharing stories and providing books that point to goodness, beauty, and truth.

ATMOSPHERE

Books and children are the heart of the library. Inspired by the philosophy and methods of British educator Charlotte Mason, Miss Stuart works to create an atmosphere free from artificial distractions, screens, and strict rules. Incorporating creative exploration and play-based learning, library lessons have memorable stories as their foundation. Children are encouraged to work hard using grit and perseverance to confront challenges both independently and in collaboration with friends, classmates, and Miss Stuart.

MISS STUART

A Percy Priest alum, Miss Stuart’s favorite childhood games were school and library and so it was no surprise when she earned a B.A. in Elementary Education from the UT-Chattanooga and her Master’s in Library & Information Science from the University of Tennessee. Inspired by the beauty of the everyday and the power of story, she takes great joy in sharing books with Percy Priest students and can’t believe that she is living out her childhood dream.

Miss Stuart is a children’s literature professor at New College Franklin and writes a monthly column for BookPage magazine. If she’s not talking, writing, or thinking about picturebooks she is probably hiking with a friend, headed to a flea market, or rewatching a Nora Ephron movie.
