Spencer Family Book Fair

Our Family Book Fair is the first week in February. We have two family nights and two Lunch with a Loved One events. Family nights will run from 4:00-8:00pm on Monday 2/4/19 and Tuesday 2/5/19. Lunch with a Loved One is on Wednesday 2/6/19 and Thursday 2/7/19 and will run during our regular lunch hours. How does it work? You come and shop at the Book Fair during their lunch recess and then you go to lunch with your student. Lunch schedule

Students will not be allowed to shop on their own. If you cannot attend our Lunch with a Loved One events and you would like for your student to shop during lunch recess please send their money in an envelope with a note stating that you would like Mrs. Adams to be their adult for shopping.

Volunteers are needed for setup and breakdown PLUS during our Book Fairs. Please sign-up here.

If you have questions email Mrs. Adams
