Koda will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair next week in the Koda Library. All Koda students will have an opportunity to visit the fair for part of a period during their English class.

• 6th graders will attend on Friday September 12th.

• 8th graders will attend on Monday September 15th.

• 7th graders will attend on Tuesday September 16th

Students who did not get an opportunity to buy a book during their English class visit will be able to ask for a pass during lunch or study hall on Wednesday and Thursday as space allows. (We will try to send no more than 3 at a time from SH’s and 6 from the Café.)
Students can also go online to, put in the zip code 12065, click on the “more details” link, and shop on line if you choose; there will also be a link on the Koda website under “Top Stories”. Students may buy books at the fair as well. They may pay with cash or a check made payable to “Koda Middle School”.
