Deerfield Scholastic Book Fair
Deerfield’s Book Fair will open next week, December 7th through 11th from 8:00 am to 3:20 pm. We will open early at 7:15 on Wednesday morning for a special “Dad’s Bring Donuts” event hosted by our PTA. Students are scheduled to visit the Book Fair in lieu of their library time next week, and they can also shop at the fair during their lunch recesses. A percentage of the sales proceeds will benefit our library. Every purchased book will receive a raffle ticket for prizes, including a pair of Los Angeles Clippers tickets, posters and others. If you aren’t able to attend the Book Fair or want to get a jump start on shopping, the online Book Fair is open at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/deerfieldelementaryschool7.
We still need many more volunteers to make this event work–beginning with Friday (12/4) afternoon set-up. Before and after school help is most needed at this time. Please sign up for volunteer slots at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4caca628aaf94-deerfield. We truly appreciate your partnership! For questions, please contact Book Fair PTA Chair Hans Wunsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
