Book Fair Coming Soon!

We are excited to have a "Bookaneer" pirate themed book fair coming at the end of the month. The book fair is a celebration of reading with hundreds of fun,engaging and affordable books for students to discover. The profits of this book fair benefit our library as well as the classrooms with the addition of new books. If you have time and talent to give we would love to have you on our Book Fair Volunteer Team! A book fair volunteer can help out in many ways...

  • bring creative flair to signs and decorations
  • organize merchandise and displays
  • offer a helping hand with setting up and packing up
  • help shoppers of all ages to find their perfect book

If you are interested in volunteering please contact our PTA Library Coordinator Leah Williams at leahwilliams2002@gmail.com or 210-844-8465 or sign up online.
