Our Book Fair is online! Support our school and help your child discover new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more! You'll love the fun new option to shop for Book Fair exclusives directly from the interactive booklist and enjoy free shipping on book-only purchases over $25.
How can my child shop the Book Fair this year?
Give your child a safe, cashless way to shop the Book Fair. This digital payment option can be used online at the Virtual Book Fair, where you'll discover an expanded selection of over 6,000 products. Plus, every purchase benefits our school! Students in all grades will “visit” the Book Fair during class times. Students are not required to purchase anything, of course, but many enjoy browsing.
How does it work?
Create an account for each child at our Book Fair link. Then, add funds or invite family and friends to contribute. Students will have an opportunity at school to shop the Book Fair using their “eWallet.” When Book Fair is over, you can still spend any unused funds online. All orders ship to homes (book-only orders over $25 ship free). Help us meet our school-wide goal of 1,000 books ($8,000)!
On a very chilly morning in February 2021, BCD Elementary Spelling Bee finalists gathered on the sport court despite the weather to spell it out - because…the show must go on. The event was broadcast into all elementary classrooms and to anxious parents via Zoom. At the end of the hour, it was Trevor who was named this year's winner! Congratulations to Trevor and all his competitors on an effort requiring stealth well beyond just spelling. Thank you to all the faculty and staff who made this event possible. We appreciate your efforts to make the show go on!
“I wish I had been here from the beginning”, said my older son half-way through 7th grade at BCD a couple of years ago. When I asked him why, he gave me several reasons: The teachers, the students, the community, the opportunities to explore new interest areas, the leadership opportunities, the service projects, the trips, and last but not least “I am finally getting how to balance academics and the rest of my interests- and I don’t have to choose one or the other- I can just be me”. I liked his answers and with our second son saying to me just the other day that he too wishes he had been at BCD “for more time than I will have here in middle school”, I decided to see how much their comments may be more than a personal story. As a trained education researcher, looking further, deeper and more closely is what I am passionate about; -and when personal experience matches with solid data, I am calling that a “Great Day!”
