Who: Any parent who likes to organize things. Come with a friend to make the task fun!!

Time commitment:

Several hours across the next three months: any time of day or afternoon until 6pm, one to more hours at a time. The more volunteers the quicker we finish this task.

Deadline: End of May 2017

The task: 

  • Checking leveled book bags/bins to be sure all copies are in the right places and to update a master list of books.

What’s involved:

  • Using the hard copy of the Book Room inventory, go through each Level (A-Z) and check to make sure it matches the titles and number of copies on the shelves. Adjust the data accordingly. If a brightly colored card is in the box, it indicates that a teacher has borrowed a set of books, which should be six. There needs to be a column on the electronic inventory sheet (see below) which shows that one set of books is checked out.
  • Retype the Book Room Inventory into a good electronic format with updated information. (Direction will be provided)
  • Label five clothes pins per teacher, Literacy staff and ELL staff. (Sample will be provided) Clothespins will have each teacher’s last name on them. They can be printed with a Sharpie or a label maker/printer. These will be used to eventually check out books from the bookroom in an effort to keep better tabs on what’s taken out.)
