Fall Book Fair—Wednesday, October 23 - Friday, October 25. The annual Onaway Book Fair is an important fundraiser that allows the PTO to buy all of the birthday books for the year as well as great new titles for the classroom libraries. Help us as we try to nurture a love for reading in all of our students! Wednesday 3:30-8:30pm plus Thursday & Friday 8:30am - 4pm. Our goal is for every child to leave with a book of his or her own. For any families needing financial assistance to make this happen, please contact Eric Forman at email@example.com or 216-295-4080. Distribution will be confidential.
**NEW this year! There will be a plethora of fabulous new books available to us through Usborne Books. If you are unable to make it on Wednesday, when only Usborne will be available at the book fair, you can order online here. Onaway will receive up to 50% back in free books for library and classroom use!
