Our 2017 Book Fair is scheduled to run October 18th through the Fall Social on the evening of Friday, October 20th.
The book sale will be open at the Fall social event from 6:00-8:00 p.m where you and your children are invited to come, browse, and choose books for purchase. Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome the night of the Fair.
During school hours on Wednesday October 18th, Thursday October 19th, and Friday November 20th your student(s) will have a chance to shop for books with their class. Please be on the look out for a back pack notice of when your child’s class will attend. You are welcome to attend the Book Fair on any of these days. We are also in need of volunteers for these days, in addition to set up on Monday Oct. 16th and Tuesday Oct. 17th from 9:30am-11:30am.
Books featured at the fair include those on the Book Fair Flier sent home the week before the event, as well as dozens of more titles. Parent volunteers are requested for Fair hours to assist students with their book purchases. We will accept cash and checks (made out to McT PTSO) during class visits. Please send a note explaining any expectations with blank checks (i.e. the number of books you would like your child to purchase or the approximate dollar value they should spend). A note will be returned to you informing you of the exact amount spent. We are required to charge sales tax.
We will also have a Classroom Library Wish List available for the duration of the fair. This was a very popular and successful program last year! McT teachers preview the Book Fair and select books for their classroom wish list, which will be posted at the Fair. Please consider donating a book as a special gift for your child’s classroom library when you or your child visits the Book Fair. When you purchase any book on a wish list, simply tell the cashier it’s a wish list book and fill out a bookplate to be placed inside the book. These gift books will enrich your child’s classroom library for years to come!
Profit from the sale will benefit our school and classroom libraries.
If you would like to volunteer please contact us. Thank you for your support!
