*The book fair will be November 4th – 8th at both centers ½ hour before and after school. A great selection of books on a wide range of topics for children of all ages will be on display.  Books make great birthday gifts, Christmas stocking stuffers, and even a surprise gift, so don’t miss out on our Book Fair! We need many volunteers!  Volunteering at the Book Fair is the perfect way to stay connected to your child at school and help students find the books they can’t wait to read.  Volunteers are needed for set up on November 1st, weekdays before and after school, and packing up the Book Fair when it’s over.  If you would like to volunteer, please sign up online at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805054AAEA62BA4FD0-holy
