Matty Akin Elementary will host an engaging, all-hands-on-deck, schoolwide Scholastic Book Fair on November 11-22, 2019, from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Funds raised during the fair will help buy books for Greenville Making a Choice Scholars (GMAC) and classroom libraries. Families, faculty, and the community are invited to attend a special opening on Sunday, November 10, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM as a Reading Kick-off, this exciting reading event, which inspires children to become lifelong readers.
The Scholastic Book Fair offers specially priced books and educational products, including popular series, award-winning titles, new releases, and other great reads from dozens of publishers.
Scholastic Book Fair attendees can share their love of reading by donating their loose change through our All for Books™ program, which helps buy books from the Book Fair for Greenville Making a Choice Scholars (GMAC) and classroom libraries. Scholastic Book Fairs matches All for Books monetary donations with a donation of up to one million dollars in books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distributes books to children in need through organizations such as the Kids In Need Foundation and the National Center for Families Learning.
