The leaves are falling, the air is cooling and that can only mean one thing. Book Fair time!
Did you know that the Scholastic Book Fair at NCC is completely parent run! Our goal is to bring the joy of book choice to every student in NCC. And the bonus is it's a fundraiser that goes directly to supporting teacher and media room libraries. Students love it but is only possible with many volunteers.
Please review the available slots in the sign up genius. Even an hour of your time would mean a lot in a weeklong fair. Thank you!
Sign Up Here to Volunteer at the Book Fair
