Book Fair: September 12 &13

Great news! Our fall Scholastic Book Fair is extra early this year: September 13!

We’ll be open during K-2 Back-to-School night on September 12 and then all day on the 13th for kiddie shopping.

We’ll need a lot of parent volunteers during the day on September 13. Let us know if you can lend a hand. Sign up form.


ISO: Pretzel Coordinator

Here’s a fun job we’re looking to fill before the school year starts: Chief Pretzeler and team. The head Pretzel Planner(s) will take care of pretzel sale pick-up and round up a handful of pretzel sale pushers monthly. It’s one of our most popular fundraisers! And it’s not a big time commitment.

Looking to fill the task soon, so sign up today. You can pick up the pretzels yourself, or rotate that job among your volunteers, we just need a point person to make sure it gets done. Thanks! Volunteer form
