Scholastic Book Fair Organizers

One or two people are needed to organize the Scholastic Book Fair, scheduled for April 16-19, 2018. This fun event earns us over half the library books we get each year, and it can’t happen without someone to organize it! Last year’s organizer will be available to provide advice. At least one organizer should be available during some school hours/after school from April 13-20. If you are interested or would like more details on what is involved, please email Rachel Henderson.
