Book Fair

Monday, April 29, 2019 (All day) to Monday, May 6, 2019 (All day)

Let's Read Over the Summer

Dawson will host it's annual book fair in the library beginning April 29th at noon and ending May 6th at noon . Books will be available for as little as $2 up to $15 or $20. The fair will open each morning at 7:45 and close each afternoon at 2:45. Students are encouraged to purchase books for summer reading. There are also science and art kits for around $10 - $15. All proceeds go toward our skating reward party so that students that earn the reward do not have to pay to skate or for the bus transportation. We appreciate your support.
