Good Shepherd's 17th Annual Book Fair 

This year's theme is
Stomp, Chomp, and Read!

May 2-7, 2019

The whole school is excited about our upcoming Book Fair. An amazing selection of books is headed our way! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents. The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading.

This spring, get ready to hold the biggest, loudest book fair ever! It’s the Scholastic DINO-MITE Book Fair: Stomp, Chomp, and Read! Super-size fun awaits when the school community is turned into reading raptors, bookceratops, and readasaurus rex bookivores ready to unleash their inner dino and enjoy a stomping, chomping, reading good time!

Volunteers are needed to assist with set-up, sales, and tear-down. 
Please contact the school office if you can help.
