Volunteers needed for November Book Fair

Its that time of year again – the Scholastic Book Fair will be at John English – starting on Tuesday, November 10 through Thursday, November 12th and we would love it if you could help us out by volunteering 90 mins or so of your time – at the  bottom of this post is a list of shifts available on a first come/first book basis.  Please email sacinfo@johnenglish.ca if you can help at all or please forward this info to someone you think could help out.

We understand if you can do a shift but have to leave when the bell rings! We can be flexible.

Like previous years, we will run shifts in ~ 90 min allotments. Like last year we will have both Book Fairs (English Book Fair and French Book Fair) in the same room – the Music room (A big shout out to Mme. McLeggon!).  For those shifts where we can’t get enough parent volunteers to staff the Book Fair, then we simply won’t be able to open (for those shifts). Please spread the word if you know someone who might be able to help!

I will be doing set up on Friday November 6  and/or Monday November 9th if anyone wants to join me! If you do I will email you the specific times.

Why do we participate in the Scholastic Book Fairs? To help cover the cost of buying new books and replacing well-loved/used ones in our School Library and our Reading Resource Rooms that ALL teachers have access to. Over the last few years the Book Fairs have generated several thousand of dollars in book credit dollars for our School.

If you can’t help out we understand and thank you just for considering it!

Thanks so much in advance.
