For the fourth year in a row, Ravenscroft's student-led fundraising team for Crucial Catch has been recognized as the top fundraising school in the nation, exceeding their goal of $30,000 by more than $6,000, and once again winning the prestigious Pink Cleat Award.
The Parents’ Association and school librarians are excited to welcome students and families to the annual Book Fair, in partnership with Scholastic. Lower School families can join us in the Lower School’s Winston Library Oct. 31-Nov. 10 as we celebrate the joy of reading! New in 2023: Middle and Upper School students will have their own book fair in Keim Center from Nov. 3-10! You’ll find best-selling titles, favorite series, and more — plus, you can shop teacher wish lists, win raffle baskets and enjoy fun activities.
Lower and Middle School students will visit their respective Book Fairs with their classes. Parents and guardians may shop with their child after school or during their child’s scheduled class visit. You can also pop in to shop anytime the fair is open. Remember, books make great holiday gifts!

Gift a Book for a Teacher or Library
Lower School teachers previewed the book fair and selected books they’d love to add to their classroom library. You may select one (or more) of the books they chose and purchase it when you visit the book fair. Your child will be able to dedicate the book to their teacher by signing it and delivering it to their classroom. Can’t make it to the fair? You may also add money to your teacher’s eWallet, and they can shop for books for their classroom even after the conclusion of the fair.
Middle and Upper School families can gift a book to the Keim Center as part of the Library Gift Program. Visit the fair for your chance to honor a teacher, coach, student or graduate by purchasing preselected books for enjoyment in the library for current and future generations. Permanent bookplates will be made for all purchases and honorees notified.
