NEXT STOP BOOK FAIR!!! Here are some FAQs for book fair.
WW and Bales Book Fair FAQs
Do I need to add tax? YES, 8.25% needs to be added to your total. The students did a preview today so you should have an idea of their Wishlist. Also the volunteers are very helpful in making sure your student has enough money for his/her purchases.
When can I come and shop with my student? You can come before school (7:25-7:55) or during lunch on assigned lunch days only (Wed through Fri). You will need to check in at the front office with your DL. Only those on the child’s ER contact list will be allowed in just as if they were checking in for lunch.
Will the book fair be open for literacy night? YES from 4:30-6pm both schools.
Do kids go to shop as a class? NO, kids will only be sent to the book fair if they have money to spend. It’s the teachers discretion on when during the day they send them.
Can we pay by check or credit card? YES! Cash, checks (made out to Westwood or Bales NOT PTO), and credit cards are accepted as well as Follett gift cards. See below!
Can I get a gift card for my child to use? YES! Go to follettgift.com and purchase one there. NOTE: it’s not an actual card. It’s all online – the book fair team will have record of the gift cards. Make sure your student knows to tell the teacher they have a gift card.

Is this a fundraiser? YES! Westwood and Bales get a percent of the proceeds. That money goes right back into our library in the form of books!
