Glenview Book Fair
February 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Come to the book fair and show your support for Glenview. Scholastic has provided a great selection of books for you to choose from, ranging from picture books to please a preschooler to the latest, greatest young adult novels. You can shop from the teachers’ wish lists and help them build classroom libraries.
Glenview Elementary School hosts a Book Fair to encourage reading and to bring books to the forefront for all our students. Our school also earns cash and vouchers for books or supplies for every item purchased. And our teachers receive many new books for their classrooms with generous gifts from Glenview families made through the Teacher Wish List at the Fair.
Keep reading, Griffins!
Volunteers are always needed (and welcome!) to help at the Fair and the activities surrounding it. While tasks at the community events vary, volunteers at the Fair itself generally do the following:
Help students to fill out their book want lists during classroom visits.
Work the cash register and credit card machine, and generally keep watch over the Fair.
Help shoppers find books and other products, and keep shelves and tables stocked and organized.
Encourage parents to visit the Teacher Wish list area to buy books for the teachers.
Look for information on Big Tent or on the PTA board in the main hallway across from the office about volunteer opportunities or contact Jen Mahan, firstname.lastname@example.org
