What does your committee do?
We plan and run three Scholastic book fairs during the year. One in October, one in February, and a BOGO sale in May.
How long have you been on your committee and/or been a co-chair?
Amanda has been a co-chair for 10 years and Brenda has been a co-chair for 3 years.
PTO Call Out: We want to take a moment to thank Amanda for all of her hard work these last 10 years as a co-chair for our Book Fair. She is very excited to pass the baton off to Lindsey Berry for the 2020-2021 School Year.
What are some highlights/favorite parts about what your committee does?
My favorite part is when you have a student who is SO excited about their new book(s)! I’ve always been a reader and it genuinely makes my heart so happy to see kids be excited about reading! Also when you help them find pick out an appropriate book and their face just lights up as they say yes to it.
How can people help out this upcoming school year?
Volunteer! We need help setting up the fair, working at it during all open hours, and with take down after it’s over. (see the general sign up on the left panel)
Any other information you'd like families to know?
We are super flexible with our volunteer hours and seriously appreciate any help at all! During lunch hours and evening conferences are when we need the most help but we will gladly take the help at any time!
