Book Fair is NEXT WEEK!

What is Book Fair?
Book Fair is a time when each grade will get to buy books on a designated day. Unlike traditional book fairs, we will be allowing each child who cannot afford a book to select any book they wish to keep, for free. Our goal this year is Literacy For All. Thanks to the generosity of the Brown School, Capuano, East Somerville Community School, Winter Hill School, parents of
the Healey community, and families all over the east coast (really! As far as Connecticut and Ohio!) have donated to our book fair. One publisher and several book stores have helped us, too! As a result, we have over 2,000 books for our students!

Schedule:
Monday, March 2: Pre-K – Grade 2
Tuesday, March 3: Grades 3 and 4
Wednesday, March 4: Grades 5 and 6
Thursday, March 5: Grades 7 and 8
Friday, March 6: Everyone who would like to buy additional books/ teachers and staff can select books to replenish their bookshelves for free.

Cost of books:
Board books 2 for $1.00
Paperbacks $1.00
Hardcovers $2.00
Full Boxed Series: $5.00

Donations are also accepted and all money will go to the Healey PTA.

Books will also be available to the Healey community on Wednesday night from 5:30-7:00pm in the Community Room located in the Cafeteria. After school on Friday, any families who would like to go through the books will have an opportunity to buy books one last time before we pack
them up, and all teachers will be invited to go through the books and replenish their bookshelves for free.

This is possible due to the tremendous support and community. We have bilingual books, books with every imaginable culture, history, and current hits. We are looking forward to making sure every kid gets a book this year.
