Classroom Library Labeling - Monday, December 16th

We have been fortunate enough to be able to purchase, through our Lantana Grant money, new classroom libraries for every grade at Blanton. The books have arrived and now we need to get them labeled for our teachers.

We know it's a busy time of year, but we would very much appreciate even just an hour of your time (or more if you have it) to help us get these books in our classrooms as quickly as possible.

Please review the available slots for this coming Monday the 16th below and click on the button to sign up. If you are able to come for more than the one hour time slot, please sign up under each hour that you can be there. Thank you so much!
