    Edison Regional Gifted Center's book fair is taking place at Barnes & Noble 5405 Touhy Ave., Skokie, IL on Sunday November 16th.  The hours Edison earns a percentage of the purchases is from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.  We receive a percentage on all purchases including cafe consumables but not including membership or gift cards.  Entertainment begins at 1:00 p.m.  Entertainment this year includes Music House performances, Story Time with Mrs. Weinstein, TAG and Edison Drummers. 
Teacher's have provided their classroom wish lists.  Items are for the teacher's classroom library.  The items are books, CD and DVDs.  The items from the wish lists will be located at an Edison table in the children's area of the store.  I will be there to help you make your selection.  Place a book plate with your child's or family name in your gift to the teacher's classroom. You then need to take your purchase to the front desk and pay for it there.  You can leave the items that are going to Edison at the front desk.  I will take them home with me that evening and then bring them to Edison and distribute them to their rightful owner. Anytime you make any purchase, at the front desk or at the Cafe' say I am with Edison. 
    Please come and purchase items for your favorite teacher's classroom!    Also, please think of all the other gifts you need to buy for the holidays.  Do you need to buy holiday cards, books, DVDs, or small craft projects?  A percentage of all purchases made on November 16th, including cafe consumables, will benefit our school.   Please attend and make this event a success again!
