A blizzard of books is headed our way! It’s Scholastic’s Arctic Adventure Book Fair: Snow Much to Read! Sending our school community on the coolest reading expedition ever and venture deep into the ice-cold, polar regions.

Volunteers needed! We are looking for parents who are willing to help set up and pack up the fair, as well as parents to help sell the books during the fair.

We have asked for high quality, award-winning books and a limited amount of toy products. That said, we’ll put out the lion’s share of the toys on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for parents to purchase during our early-morning parent events.

Book fair dates and hours:

  • Monday, Dec. 9 – 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 10 – 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Donuts for Dads – early opening)
  • Wednesday, Dec. 11 – 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Thursday, Dec. 12 – 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Muffins for Moms – early opening)
  • Friday, Dec. 13 – 8 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. (ends after primary recess)

All for Books has been a success and we will continue with this program, so save your spare change. This program is an easy and effective way to unite the school community and provide more books for kids and teachers. All funds collected through All for Books are used to buy more books from the book fair. Scholastic then matches those monetary donations with a donation of up to $1 million in books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distributes books to children in need through a variety of organizations.

If you have any questions, please contact our parent volunteer coordinators, Tanya Steele and Kira Donohoo.
