After missing out on many beloved traditions, our fall in-school Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. Here’s what you need to know about the Fair:

• This event is not open to the public, but a limited number of parents may volunteer to staff the Book Fair at scheduled times (please email PTO President Amanda Asman at if you would like to volunteer).

• Our Book Fair offers a cash-free payment option called eWallet. It’s a convenient digital

account that your child can use for shopping at our Fair. You can also contribute to teachers’ eWallets  for classroom libraries. Unused eWallet funds may be spent online after the in-school Fair ends. Students may also bring cash to buy books.


•. If you can’t volunteer at the Fair, please consider shopping online at our school’s Virtual Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25.

Student Book Exchange

The Academy Student Book Exchange is a favorite Book Fair tradition. Here is how it works: 

  1. Each student is assigned a “secret pal” in their class to buy a special book for.  You and your child will be provided with the name of your child’s “secret pal”.

  2. Your child can choose a book to purchase for your student’s Book Exchange partner. Book Fair staff can use the “secret pal’s” wish list to help choose a book.

  3. The books will be distributed at The Academy before Winter Break.


Visit our Book Fair homepage  at  to learn more, browse books and get started with eWallet and online shopping. We look forward to celebrating our love of books together at the Book Fair. 

Happy reading!
