We are looking for volunteers to help us make this Book Fair another memorable one.  Please join us to set up, restock, and help our children choose from an extensive variety of reading adventures.  There is nothing like the feeling you get from helping a child find a book that will inspire them, make them smile, and discover the love of reading.  It is a true joy to volunteer at this event!



Each Class will have the opportunity to visit and shop at the Book Fair during the school day.  Volunteers will be readily available to assist your child in finding the book that is perfect for him/her.  Your teacher will let you know date and time of your class visit.  Most books range in price from about $6 to $20, not including tax.  CLICK HERE FOR SCHEDULE!

Don't forget TAXES 

We MUST collect NY states sales tax of 8.875% on every purchase.  Please make sure to calculate this expense when sending money with your kids for their class visits.  Extra dollars or coins are very helpful for this.
