The Book Fair is coming!

The Book Fair is coming!  Last year we gifted over $7,500 worth of books to the school thanks to the success of the fair!  We are hoping to do even better this year!  Part of the reason our fair is so successful is because of our many parent volunteers.

We need volunteers for the Book Fair Luau during the following dates and times.  Sign up early to get your preferred time slot!  Talk to your friends now and sign up together as we need 3-4 volunteers per hour depending upon what time of day it is.  We would prefer if you can volunteer for at least an hour if possible.   If you can help out on multiple days, even better!  We will take any time that you can give.

  • Friday, Jan. 27, 9am-noon:  Book Fair set up (set up tables, unpack books, set up decorations)
  • Monday, Jan. 30-Thursday, Feb. 2:  help the students shop the fair, 8:30a-4pm
  • Thursday, February, 2: staff the fair during the Winter Wonderland Social, 6:30p-9:00pm (great opportunity for working parents to get involved!)
  • Friday, February 3:  help to fill student orders and break down the fair, 8:30a-3pm

We can’t have a successful fair without your help.  If you can volunteer, please email Jen at gentilej@centralptonews.org with your preferred date(s) and time(s).
