Teacher Wish Lists
We are assembling Teacher Wish Lists for new book purchases.  They will be in the gym on Book Fair day. This is a special way to support your teacher’s classroom. Check the wish list and place all purchases with your special note in your teacher’s bag at the Wish List Table.

Donations to Jumpstart
We are so pleased that Ms. Brenna Hagen, Kindergarten teacher and President of the newly formed local alumni chapter of Jumpstart, is teaming up with our Book Fair again to promote a wonderful cause. Jumpstart is a national early education organization that helps children in low-income communities develop the language and literacy skills they need to be successful in school. Please purchase previously read preschool books (50 cents – $1.00) in the Library to support 3 to 6 year olds in Boston’s low-income neighborhoods. Your generosity will help make the Book Fair a huge success, raising money for our school, and supporting this great cause. Come fill the JUMPSTART bin, which can be found in the Library.

Bring us your used books!
We need your support to run a vibrant used book sale so please get your book donations ready. Starting Thursday, March 7 through Wednesday, March 13, please drop off your clean (no markings please), previously-read preschool, children’s and adult current fiction books in the Library from 8:15-8:45 AM. A Book Voucher for a free used book will be given to every family that donates! Can we top last year’s donation of 1,600 books? Thank you, as always, for your incredible support!

Volunteers needed

See you on March 14 at the BOOK FAIR!
