Fall Book Fair and Book Fair Cafe are this week
Tuesday, October 1, 2019 9:55 AM

This year the Fall Book Fair is Thursday, October 3 through Saturday, October 5 in the gym. As always, there will be a great selection of books and your purchases help support Burroughs. Please come and shop before and after school on Thursday and Friday and join us on Saturday from 11am to 2 pm for the Book Fair, Flu Shot Clinic, and Book Fair Café.

Students will have the opportunity to buy books when their classes visits the fair during the school day on Thursday or Friday. The Scholastic eWallet is an easy way to give your kids money to spend at the fair. Rather than sending cash to school, you can upload money to an account that cashiers can access for your kids when they want to buy something. More information and a link to create an eWallet account are on our Book Fair homepage.
 
The Fall Book Fair is when we have the Teacher Wish List Bins. All of our Burroughs teachers will have a bin they can fill with books from their "wish list." Burroughs families can buy these books at the book fair and deliver straight to their teachers.

After buying your books, be sure to head over to the book fair cafe in the cafeteria for lunch. 
The Book Fair Café will be serving pizza, hot dogs, sides, and dessert from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Meals for $5 - CASH OR CHECK ONLY.

We need many volunteers to help set up, run cash registers, and break down. Shifts can be as short as an hour. If you'd like to volunteer, please use the Scholastic volunteer portal or contact  Rebecca White. You will need to create a Scholastic username and password if you don't already have one. 
 
Volunteers are also needed for the Book Fair Café! It's an easy and fun volunteer job and great way to meet other Burroughs parents or socialize with friends. Sign up  here. Contact  Thea Reilkoff or Nicole Hoiland with questions.
