Saddle Up for the Fall Scholastic Book Fair

Help the Book Fair continue to build our BR Classroom Libraries and encourage our students to be Readers!  We need volunteers...we need YOU!

The fall Scholastic Book Fair will be held Monday August 28 – Thursday August 31 and there's lots of way to help.  Here's just a few:

Monday August 28 and Tuesday August 29 are Elementary Student Preview days. Could you give an hour or two of your time to help Students fill out their Wish Lists while they check out the books at the book fair?

Would you be willing to donate a needed item? 

Are you interested in digging out your Western-Wear and getting involved in another way? There are lots of ways to help!

Please Saddle Up and Sign Up using the Scholastic Volunteer link below,

or contact Pat Gort by email or phone to get connected!

We are so grateful for your support of this important event for BR!
