  • Teacher Wish Lists: Books and gift certificates purchased for teachers will be given to the teacher by the child who purchased the book or gift certificate. Find the wish lists for every teacher at the Book Fair!
  • Back-Ordered Books: 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.
  • Dogwood Donations: While you're shopping for your kids, please consider making a purchase for our sister school, Dogwood Elementary, a Title 1 school located in Reston, Virginia. Donations are easy. Simply drop your book donations in the specially marked bin as you leave the Book Fair. We'll deliver the new books to the students of Dogwood Elementary School on behalf of the parents of CRS.
