Spring BOGO Book Fair
The Spring Book Fair is May 1 through May 10, and will be open during Open House on May 10 at 5 pm.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! If you have never helped out with a book fair, it is a lot of fun! Time slots are flexible: please use the online book fair sign up.
Everyone loves this fair because you save lots of money and buy books to last you through the summer. The free item is of equal or less in value. Mrs. Lightstone often helps students and their families save money and sometimes that means that they buy their book at half price instead of buy one get one free. Inventory for this sale moves quickly so try to visit before Open House on May 10th!
May HSA Meeting
We extend a special invitation to the volunteers who have given their time and talents this year so that we can take a moment to thank you for all that you've done. As a token of our appreciation, we will be serving refreshments and have some door prizes to give out.
