Book Fair Is This Saturday!
Tuesday, October 02, 2018 9:55 AM

Time to get excited about books! The annual fall Scholastic Book Fair is coming up this Saturday, October 6, from 11 am to 2 pm in the gym. Browse books, eat lunch, get a flu shot, purchase spirit wear, and support Burroughs!
 
Details
As always, there will be a great selection of books for all ages, story times with special guest readers, spirit wear available for purchase, and the Flu Shot Clinic. The Book Fair Café will be serving pizza, hotdogs, pie, and fruit. Meals will be available for $5 (cash or check only). The book fair will also be open for half an hour before and after school on Thursday, October 4, and Friday, October 5. Students can bring money to buy books when their class visits the book fair during the school day on Thursday or Friday.
 
Book Fair Volunteers
The book fair still needs a few volunteers to work cash registers on Saturday. The shifts are short, and the registers are easy to use. Thanks for your help! Sign up here or email Rebecca White.
 
Café Volunteers
The Café will be open from 11:30 am to 1 pm (only on Saturday, October 6) in the Burroughs Cafeteria to help feed the hungry shoppers at the Scholastic Book Fair. Even 30 miniutes of your time would help. Sign up here. Email Thea Reilkoff or Nicole Hoiland  with questions.
 
Spirit Wear Volunteers
Please email Brynn Patterson if you are able to help for an hour-long shift at the spirit wear stand on Saturday, October 6, between 11 am and 2 pm.

Flu Shot Clinic
Burroughs will be hosting a flu shot clinic for Burroughs students, families, and staff during the Scholastic Book Fair in the auditorium. The Minnesota Visiting Nurses Association will be providing the flu shots. The nasal spray will be offered this year. Bring your insurance card if you have one. If your child does not have insurance, the flu vaccine will be provided at no cost. Get your whole family immunized before or after visiting the book fair. Wear a shirt that allows easy access to your upper arm. It's all very simple and convenient. Please call the Health Office with any questions: (612) 668-3288. 
Volunteers make a difference! You can help make this our best book fair ever!
