SAVE THE DATE: Duveneck Book Fair is March 14-17

Come one, come all to our annual school book fair!

Our book fair is the perfect opportunity to spark a love of reading in your child or to expand their own personal library. Not only will you be able to find great books, but you’ll also be supporting our school. A huge 25% of the proceeds from the book fair will go towards funding important programs and activities for our students. 

Parent volunteers are needed for set-up on Thursday, March 9, closing activities on Friday, March 17 and during shopping hours to manage the flow of the checkout line, restock books and help kids to find particular books. Please consider signing up for a few slots here. 

Book Fair Hours:

Tues 3/14: 10am – 3:10pm, 6-8pm (FAMILY NIGHT, All are welcome and Doree Tschudy will do a reading)

Thur, 3/16: 7:45am – 3:10pm

Note: students can shop during school hours like lunchtime and classroom visit time, parents may shop before drop-off and after pick-up.

Students can bring cash from home or parents can log into their Scholastic account and set up a Scholastic eWallet.

Please also consider helping fund the book scholarship and teachers’ classroom libraries. You can donate for scholarships and teachers here. (We used “12th Grade” to show this is a special eWallet for our school.)
