A big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who came out and helped at our fall book fair! This was the most successful fair in the history of Gates book fairs! Total sales for the week were $15,580.90. This would not have been possible without our wonderful volunteers!
With the Scholastic dollars earned, the PTA was able to gift each teacher $50 in free books, donate 30 books to the library, raffle off 25 free posters to students, and give 35 students a free book through the book raffle! Each volunteer earned $5 in Scholastic dollars for every 3 hours volunteered. In addition, the 4 teachers with the most parent volunteer hours won $100 in free books for their classrooms! Congratulations to Sra. Gomez, Sra. Flagstad, Sr. Rohr, and Sra. Victoria!
Our spring book fair will be held April 27th-May 1st. This will be a buy one, get one free book fair. We are looking forward to getting even more books into more students’ hands this spring. We hope to see you there and would appreciate any volunteer time you are able to give to help make this another successful fair!
Your Book Fair Chairs,
Lori Hall & Michelle Mendoza
