Maple Dale Book Swap- May 12,2017

Maple Dale Elementary students are invited to participate in a Book Swap on May 12, 2017. Bring in your gently used books and trade them in for “new to you” books to read! Here’s how the Book Swap will work:

From May 2, 2017 to May 11, 2017 students may bring in any ‘gently used’ books to their classroom for donation. We will be collecting (Kindergarten through 4th grade appropriate) books brought in by each student.

May 12th students will be invited to visit the Book Swap tables and select a book(s) of their choice. The number of books students will be allowed to select will be based on the number of books that are donated in total. The more books we get, the more books students will be allowed to take home! However, if a student is unable to donate a book they will still be able to choose a book(s) on the day of the Book Swap.

Please consider volunteering for the Book Swap
