Holden Fall Book Fair

Hello Holden Families!
My name is Monica Lewis.  I am the chairperson for the Scholastic Book Fair.  My youngest son, Mason is a fourth grader at Holden.
I received your name from the Volunteer Opportunities sign – up sheet that you provided to the HSA/PTO stating you have an interest in volunteering for the Book Fair.  I know some of you, but noticed a lot of new names.  The Book Fair is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with the students, staff and other parents. I am very excited to have you on board – so thank you for volunteering!
The dates for the Fall Book Fair are as follows:
Wednesday, October 21:             Classrooms Shop during designated times        
Morning (8:45-11:45AM)
Afternoon (12:50-2:25PM)
Thursday, October 22:                  Classrooms Shop during designated times
Morning (8:45-11:45AM)
Thursday, October 22:                  Shop during Community Outreach 6:30-8:00PM

Friday, October 23:                        Classrooms shop during designated times                                                             Morning (8:45 – 11:45AM)
Make up shop (11:35 – 1:00PM)
Afternoon Clean up/Tear down (1:05 – 3:00PM)
If you can please send me an email response or text (Include your name and child’s name if you text) ASAP of ALL times that you will be available to volunteer and the best way to contact you, I can get a better understanding of who can do what.  I have a lot of fifth grade volunteers, so I typically need one parent for each timeslot, two for Kindergarten classes and I will need about 6-8 volunteers for Holden’s Community Outreach night and two for clean- up.
I am in the process of teacher sign up for shopping times.  Once I have those I will have more specifics of what time your volunteer slot will be. I will be in touch with your date/ time as soon as possible.
If you are unable to volunteer for the Fall Book Fair – no worries, just send me a text or email letting me know what Fair works best for you and I will make sure to send correspondence accordingly.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.
