Feelin Groovy

Book Fair is coming!  We will be setting up on Monday February 1st in the morning and it will run through until 12:30 p.m. Wednesday February 3rd at which time we will take down the displays. You can even visit the Fair during the Parent/Teacher Interviews which will take place on the 1st & 2nd.

Many of you have faithfully volunteered for this event and we have appreciated you so very much.  We need volunteers to help once again.  If you can help students choose books, handle the cash desk, or supervise during class visits, please let us know. Anything you choose to do would be appreciated.

If you are able to help, please complete the form that is linked HERE and return it to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible.  Without your support we would not be able to have this event – we require approximately 10-12 people to run for the three days.

We look forward to working with you to make our book fair an exciting reading event for everyone!
