Book Fair

Every year the Killian PTSA provides students in all grade levels an opportunity to buy their required novels and workbooks at school during their English class period. It usually takes place during the beginning of the First Nine Weeks.

Your child will be notified of the Book Fair date and the novels or workbooks he or she will need to purchase. Please support the PTSA by encouraging your child to purchase his or her books at the Book Fair.
