Book Fairs

Updated: Aug 19, 2019

Events: Fall (September 23-27, 2019) & Spring (March 23-27, 2020)

Scholastic provides the books, planning tools and display cases for the events, which are run by volunteer parents. The Book Fair strives to get a book (or two) in every student's hands. Profits from the Book fair benefit the school library and PTA events.

Chair/Co-Chair Responsibilities

Chair job includes coordinating communication with Scholastic (meetings, training workshops, phone calls), communication with school (custodial, reminders about room use, coordinating Spring student visits), communication with parents (flyers, bulletin boards, newsletter blurbs, emails, Facebook, volunteers), communication with teachers (teacher preview event, wish boxes) and preparing advertising for the fair, fair participation, restocking books during fair, managing money (obtain petty cash from PTA, balance the cash drawer each night and at end of event, return money to PTA), and end of fair financial forms.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer jobs include set up (unpacking boxes, decorating the room), cashier, customer service (helping students and parents find the right book, restocking, straightening books), and take down (packing boxes). Training is provided for cashier; registers are very user friendly.
