VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY SPOTLIGHT: Winter Book Fair
Twice each year our amazing librarians Amy Schroeder-Palermo and Tracy LaCaille go above and beyond to bring the Scholastic Book Fair to our school. The Book Fair gives students and their families the opportunity to purchase books for themselves, or to donate books to their classrooms by buying books from the teachers’ wish lists. The winter Book Fair has great timing for holiday gift-giving, and your students will get a chance to browse the selection and bring home wish list of their own. A portion of the proceeds from all book sales comes back to the school, as well.
The winter Book Fair runs M- F, December 8th – 12th. It is open during school hours (8:00 am – 2:40 pm, closed for lunch 11:40 – 12:40) and ends at 11:40 am on Friday. Tuesday is “Family Night” with extended hours from 3:00 – 6:30 PM.
It’s a great event, and I encourage you to get involved by volunteering and shopping.
