Heath Scholastic Book Fair 2023 (rescheduled)

Description

The postponed Book Fair has been rescheduled!

From December 4th-8th, the Scholastic Book Fair will be returning to the Heath Library. It is a very exciting time! I am hopeful that a few volunteers can help each day.

What do volunteers do?

On the set-up day (Friday 1st December 9:30 a.m. ~11:00 a.m.): Moving tables, chairs, furniture, carts of books; putting out decorations and book displays; tidying and facing up stock; getting it ready for the afternoon staff preview. This is quite physical and can be hard work!

During Book Fair: Some times will be very busy and some will be quiet; assisting children with finding thing, making choices, understanding their money (little ones will definitely come with a bag of pennies and have no idea what to do), understanding prices and how tax affects them, restocking, straightening up, monitoring etc. I will do all the cash register business, so you won't need to worry about handling money or the register.

On the shut-down day (Friday 8th December 12 p.m. ~2:00 p.m.): Packing it all up, moving boxes, furniture, chairs; resetting the library to normal. Like set-up, this is quite physical and a good workout!

(note: Wednesday that week is an early release, so no volunteers needed for Wednesday afternoon)

I am very grateful for all help! Please reach out if you have questions! lindsay_anderson@psbma.org


Book Fair Support

Please consider if you can help provide financial support for the book fair OR if you need financial support for your child(ren).

  1. Kindly consider making a donation to the Heath School ewallet. The funds are used to purchase items for students who otherwise would not be able to purchase anything. DONATE HERE.
  2. If you need assistance, please send me your child(ren)'s name(s) and their class section (ex. KC, 2S, 7-1). They will receive access to an ewallet, which I will confirm with you at the end of the week which will include the amount they have to spend. Usually it is around $15.
