Scholastic Book Fair: Saturday, October 7
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 11:45 AM

Stock Up on Great Reading Material!

Come one, come all to this year's Fall Book Fair on Saturday, October 7, from 11 am to 2 pm.  The Book Fair is a fun Burroughs community event and a significant fundraiser for the Burroughs PTA. It's also a great opportunity to meet up with friends, listen to your teachers read their favorite stories, and browse thousands of books. In addition to stocking your home library, please consider adding to the Media Center's collection or donating to Armful of Books.

Students, staff, and parents can preview and purchase books before and after school on Thursday, October 5 and Friday, October 6. An adult must accompany students if they wish to purchase books during the preview period.   
We can't do it without you! Volunteering at the Fall Book Fair is the perfect way to stay connected to your child at school and help students find the books they can't wait to read. Time slots are available during the week, at the Saturday Book Fair, and for set-up and tear-down. Click here to sign up through Scholastic Books. You will need to set up an account if you don't already have one. For more information, email Monica Barranco.


Make Sure to Stop at the Book Fair Café!


Need to refuel? The Book Fair Café will be open Saturday from 11:30 am to 1 pm during the Book Fair. Pizza, hot dogs, pie, and fruit will be available for purchase. Meals will be available for $5 (cash or check only), and all profits from the café go directly to the PTA. 
If you are interested in working in the café on Saturday, there are time slots available from 11 am to 1 pm. Sign up here. Email Marta Fraboni or Thea Reilkoff with questions.
