Scholastic Book Fair Takes Over North Side

By Brad Hoggatt

The students at North Side Elementary school are benefitting from books, more so than ever! This week, the Scholastic Book Fair has set up shop in the school’s gymnasium, giving the kids an easy opportunity to add to their own home collections. Wendy Smith, RESC Board member, and Book Fair coordinator is thrilled to help create this event each year for the students. “I started this project when my own daughters were at North Side. I fell in love so much with the event, that now the school can’t get rid of me!” But everyone at North Side agrees- Smith is why the Book Fair is such a great draw for the students and they hope she continues this for years to come.

Where most schools are lucky enough to host one book fair each year, Smith has made it a biannual event, creating two memorable book fairs each school year. With themes, decorations, and costumes, each Scholastic Book Fair that Smith chairs is enjoyed by all! This year’s theme, “The Enchanted Forest” features fanciful wall murals and trees, complete with woodland critters and gnome doors!

The Scholastic Book Fair is open every day of the week during the school day, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but will have extended hours this Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., in order to coordinate with North Side’s Family Cookout. Book prices start as low as $2 for a new, paperback chapter book, and can run up to $20 for the newest, hardback book. Community friends are encouraged to visit, as well. Please note, though, that all guests to North Side must first register in the office.
