Spring Book Fair: Details and Volunteer Opportunities
Tue, Apr 11 11:38am

Hello JP Families,


Next week, a letter will be coming home with your kiddos with information regarding the spring Scholastic Book Fair, April 24-28, 2022. It contains a few important reminders:


  • We are looking for volunteers! You can sign up for morning or afternoon slots here.

  • Monday and Tuesday are browsing days. Students come with their class and—with help from teachers, aides, and book fair volunteers—fill out a wish list they bring home to review with you! You will send the wish list back with them, identifying the books you are comfortable with purchasing, along with money to pay for the books. We accept both cash and check, and are offering eWallets for digital payments this year! Details at: https://bit.ly/JPBookFairSpring23

  • This year the NJ state law is different, and we are required to charge sales tax. There will be a line for the additional 6.625% on the wish list to factor into any money you send to school with your student. 

  • Class shopping days will be Wednesday and Thursday, April 26 and 27. We will hold a special 2-hour family shopping event on April 26 from 4 to 6 pm if you'd like to come in and shop with your child. We do accept credit cards when adults are purchasing. No special sign-up is required.

  • On the wish list, you will also see space to donate to the teachers’ wish list for the class and allow volunteers to help with appropriate substitutions should a title be out of stock. Any money remaining will be donated directly to the Johnson Park library.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out directly.
