The Parker Bear Book Fair is fast approaching (again)! The Book Fair will be held Wednesday, March 7 through Friday, March 9 from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm and Saturday, March 10 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Be sure not to miss Saturday morning, as it is the first annual world famous Parker Bear Book Fair Waffle Party! There will be delicious waffles provided by Nina’s waffles! There will be story telling by beloved CP teachers! There will be a hot chocolate bar in support of the 5th grade class!
During the week, your child will walk through the Parker Bear Book Fair with their class to preview the books and compile a wish list for your convenience. The wish list will be sent home with your child with instructions on how to return payment. Additionally, you can visit the Parker Bear Book Fair any time it is open to purchase books with your child, most especially during the Waffle Party! There will also be a Teacher’s Wish List available at the Book Fair, should you wish to donate a book to a classroom, a specials class, or the library.
The Saturday Waffle Party is free to attend, although tickets to purchase a waffle will be $5 if purchased before the event and $7 if purchased at the door. Waffle tickets will be available before the event via Konstella.
We are excited to announce that all proceeds from the book fair will go to support the Parker Bear Fund, a CP PTO fund that exists to help provide enrichment opportunities to CP families experiencing financial difficulties. This year the PTO is working hard to establish the Parker Bear Fund and we are thrilled that the book fair can play a part in that.
As always, we can’t do this without the help of our wonderful CP community. Please see the Konstella sign up email that follows for Book Fair volunteer opportunities! We so appreciate your help!
