Teacher Wish Lists
Find the wish lists for every teacher at the Book Fair and help add books to each classroom's library! Books purchased for teachers will be given to the teacher by the child who purchased the book. A "given by" nameplate will be included with each book.
Make your teacher's wish list shopping even easier with gift certificates! (Plus teachers receive a 20% discount when shopping.) Gift certificates will be given to the teacher by the child who purchased the gift certificate. You can purchase them from 11/9-11/12. All gift certificates must be redeemed at the CRS Book Fair by 11/13.
Your student will pick up their back-ordered books from the library this year. We will notify your student’s teacher when the back-ordered book is available for pick-up at the library. We receive deliveries daily, so usually, requests arrive within 2-3 days although this may vary.
While you're shopping for your kids, please consider making a purchase for our sister school, Dogwood Elementary, a Title 1 school in Reston. Donations are easy - just drop your book donations in the specially marked bin as you leave the Book Fair. We'll deliver the new books to the Dogwood students on behalf of the families of CRS.
Contact our VP of Fundraising. Note - returns are not accepted for items sold at the Book Fair. If an item is defective we can process an exchange for a replacement item (item must be exchanged prior to the end of the Book Fair).
