A thank you note from Mrs. Bonner!

Thank you all from the bottom of my book loving heart for your support of our recent BOOK FAIR! Because of your purchases, we are able to add new books to our library collection and I am thrilled that students will have books to read at home. ENJOY

The online book fair is open through November 9th! Purchases made online also benefit our school.

Battle of the Books


Bigfork students in grades 4 through 8 gets the opportunity to create teams and participate in Montana Battle of the Books. The teams typically read 10-12 book titles over a period of time, and test their knowledge about the books in school battles. The the qualifying teams prepare for the state competition and another round of book battles. Pictured here is our 5th grade team who qualified for the state competition in 2023.

Yearly Book Fair


Bigfork Elementary and Middle School library hosts a Scholastic Book Fair every year. This is a great opportunity for our students to browse among titles for their favorite books and genres and to discover new reads! Not only does it encourage and inspire our students to read, it is also an important fundraiser for our school library so that we can continue to provide excellent books for our students throughout the school year. The Book Fair is usually held in November, during the Parent/Teacher conferences. Information will be sent home with students ahead of each fair.
