Scholastic Book Fair



“The Scholastic Book Fair is back IN PERSON at BPS on Thursday June 3 and Friday June 4! This is a great time to stock up on books for summer reading by the pool, at the beach, or in the air conditioning!

The class shopping schedule is posted below. If you want your student to purchase books and other items on their designated day, please send cash in an envelope with your student’s name and class on it so they can shop at their designated  time. (smaller bills if possible)

The book fair can’t happen without volunteers so a Sign Up Genius is also attached. Please find a slot or two (or whatever 😎) that fits your schedule so you can lend a hand to students who may need help in selecting their purchases.

If you have any questions or concerns , please reach out to Ginette Bracke at 908-397-6437or [email protected]

BPS PTA Book Swap






It’s time for the Book Swap on Friday May 28!

  • Students are asked to bring in up to 4 gently used books to swap
  • Books will be collected Wednesday 5/19 – Friday 5/21
  • Collection boxes will be in each classroom and the main lobby
  • The books will sit over three days to “decontaminate” just like they do at public libraries.

Please note:  The gently used books should be reading level appropriate (1st through 7th grade).

We will gladly accept additional books not part of your child’s swap.

Books for our older students are especially needed.


If you have any questions or are free to volunteer, please contact Molly Dennis at [email protected]
