Abbott Elementary” is the gift that keeps on giving as ABC has partnered with Scholastic to provide underfunded schools with free book fairs.

The book fairs will take place between March 14 and 18th at seven Title 1 schools. 

Each teacher will receive 10 books and each student will receive two free books. 

Participating schools include:

  • Harrity Elementary (Philadelphia)
  • Diehl Elementary (Erie, Pennsylvania)
  • Bond Elementary (Chicago)
  • Dayton’s Bluff Elementary (Minneapolis)
  • Freeman Elementary (Flint, Michigan)
  • Cortada Elementary ( Los Angeles)
  • Florence Griffith Joyner Elementary (Los Angeles)

ABC has also announced plans to relaunch its Traveling Teacher’s Lounge initiative, which provides teachers with classroom supplies, breakfast, books from Scholastic, and “Abbott Elementary” merchandise. 

The first round of the lounge, which began on January 3, donated more than 1,000 books, 10,000 notebooks, 100,000 writing utensils, and 15,000 art and craft materials at schools in Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey, and Maryland.

This is amazing! I still remember the excitement I felt as a child when it was time for the book fair at school!

About “Abbott Elementary”

In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers—and a slightly tone-deaf principal—are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life.

Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children. 

Abbott Elementary” stars Quinta Brunson as Janine Teagues, Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, and Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
