Parker Woods Montessori Scholastic Book Fair – Fall 2015 – Urgent Need for Volunteers

Parker Woods Montessori Scholastic Book Fair – Fall 2015 – Urgent Need for Volunteers

The Fall Book Fair is coming to PWM next week and we need lots of volunteers. Erma Shaffer, our Book Fair chairperson, will be unavailable to lead the Book Fair next week due to an ankle injury she experienced this week. We are wishing Erma a speedy recovery, and we will need all the help we can get in her absence!

Please review the available slots on the sign-up list and add your name to slots where you can help. The Book Fair will be held in the PWM Media Center, across from the cafeteria.

The Book Fair is a great way to get books into the hands of kids as well as raise money for the school. Volunteering is also a fun way to meet other parents. As a volunteer, you will have time shop for your own kids, or read a book, in between the busy moments helping students, parents, and grandparents.

Thank you for all your help!
