This year, we are hosting a special shopping event on Wednesday, September 29, just for our Canterbury Grandparents and Grandfriends. During this time, you can shop with your grandchild and support their school at the same time!
Lower School: Grandparents and grandfriends can pick up their grandchild from their classrooms at 2:00 p.m. and head to the Book Fair in the PAC
Middle School: Fifth and eighth-grade grandparents can meet their grandchildren at the PAC at 12:00 p.m. Sixth and seventh-grade grandparents can meet their grandchildren at the PAC at 11:30 a.m.
Please enter the building through the Lower School Reception area. We will have a volunteer at the Lower School reception to direct grandparents to their grandchild’s classroom. Please make sure your grandchild knows that you will attend.
We are pleased to provide you with a safe and convenient digital payment option for your student to shop the Fair cash-free: eWallet. Our families also have the opportunity to purchase books online on our school’s Scholastic Book Fair website. Online shopping will run through September 30. Books ordered online will be delivered to your student on campus at the end of the fair. Visit our web pages for more information:
All proceeds from our book fair supply books and resources for our children’s classrooms, faculty, and libraries. We appreciate your dedication to creating lifelong readers and look forward to seeing you at the fair!
