Our SLDS Book Fair is known far and wide for its history as much more than a simple venue for selling books! Every year for over 30 years, our Book Fair has provided an opportunity to celebrate the joys of early literacy, children’s theater, family fun time, and Christmas spirit! Our SLUMC Fellowship Hall is transformed into a wonderland of excellent children’s literature selections, creative parent-made decorations, and activities galore! Grandparent’s and Special Friends night, Alumni Party, Santa Visits w/Photos, Special Performances, Dad’s Breakfast, and more, delight our school families and Houston community year after year! Did you know that the exciting outcomes continue?
The SLDS Book Fair is a designated fundraiser for some important initiatives at our school. First, we know that not every family can afford to attend our school without financial assistance. Our successful Book Fairs support our healthy tuition scholarship program! Additionally, we value continuing education and professional development for our SLDS staff. As our teachers and administrators grow in knowledge and experience, we know that the outcome is daily intentional, research-based classroom practices. From our Teacher’s Professional Book Club, to local and national conferences, to bringing presenters here for our staff meetings, the Book Fair provides amazing opportunities for us to be the best early childhood educators we can be! And, let’s not forget the tremendous selection of books in our SL Children’s Library! Every selection in our collection is hand-picked to provide excellent reading experiences for the children in our classrooms and our greater community!
Please accept our heart-felt gratitude for your support! Underwriting letters have arrived in homes and on-line giving is available, too. It is our highest honor to serve you and your children, to strive to be a beacon early childhood education program, and to do this while we live and love like Jesus! Looking forward to our festivities this year for Book Fair 2019, December 2-5, in the “Land of Sweets and Stories!” Hope to see you there! Come enjoy the SLDS Book Fair with us!!
