Volunteers Needed – Scholastic Book Fair

The HSA will be hosting the annual Scholastic Book Fair from Monday, October 4th through Thursday, October 7th.  The book fair will be open for students to shop during the school day, with extended hours on one day for parents to shop before/after school hours. Proceeds from the book fair (up to 50% of your purchase!!) go towards funding new books and equipment for the classrooms and the school library.

Volunteers are needed to help set-up/clean-up the book fair and to work at the fair by helping students make selections and serving as cashiers.  Please note that in order to volunteer you must have completed the VIRTUS training, completed a Background Check, and be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.  If you are able to help, please click HERE to access the Volunteer Sign Up sheet.  You will need to create an account if you don’t already have one and then proceed to register for a date and time period to help.  Any questions can be directed to event chair/parent volunteer Alicia Poth (apoth@saintjamesschool.net).

Any time you can give would be appreciated to help us make this year’s book fair a huge success.  Thank you!
