Scholastic Book Fair – March 9th and 10th

Spring into Reading!  Come to the Scholastic book fair and get some great books for spring break entertainment AND support the school library.  Our goal is to sell 500 books – that is one book for every student in the school!  That will give us 250 NEW books for the library!
Also consider buying a book for the classroom – classroom wish lists will be posted in the gym during the fair. The more books sold, means more resources for the Trafalgar Library!
The book fair will run March 9th from 1:30pm – 7pm and March 10th from 1:30pm – 5pm in the gym.
If you would like to volunteer during the fair, please contact Janice at  Volunteers are needed for set up, cashiers and packing up.  Thanks for helping!
