Help Fund Classroom Libraries!

The book fair is a great time to help add books to classroom libraries!  Teacher wishlists will be on display at the book fair.  Gift certificates can be purchased for classrooms, and some teachers may choose to create Teacher eWallets for their classroom libraries. 

A list of Teacher eWallet links can be found HERE.  (Link will be available after November 20th.)

Help Add Books to the Cone Health Cancer Center at Wesley Long!

Sternberger's Relay for Life Committee and Media & Technology Advisory Committee (MTAC) are teaming up!  At the book fair, families can add books to the Cone Health Cancer Center at Wesley Long for children who accompany family members for cancer treatment appointments. 

Sternberger families can either buy a book at the book fair to donate or donate any amount to the Books for Cone Health eWallet we have set up.  Click HERE to donate to the eWallet.  (eWallet funds can only be spent at the book fair or Scholastic online.)

Our goal is to donate 500 new books for children this year - fiction and nonfiction titles across all K-5 reading levels.  We look forward to partnering with our Sternberger families to meet this goal!
