PTO Notes: book fair, auction parking

Usborne Book Fair

Come and join us this Friday morning at Stearns Hall for Round 2 of the Usborne Book Fair, benefiting the Library Media Center.  Books will be for sale from 08:00-09:30 with an Usborne representative available to answer all your questions. Usborne Books are high quality children’s books available in English or Spanish.  Over 1,400 books are available—board books, phonics readers, science, history, problem solving, arts and crafts and more.
The PTO will be hosting a coffee at this time with a special invitation to all new parents to stop by and ask questions, provide feedback, or just chit-chat and get to know each other.

If you are not able to stop by you can always shop on line until October 9th.

  1. Go to www.usbornedirect.com and click on the link for The International School Book Fair

  2. Start Shopping

  3. FREE SHIPPING if you indicate “ship to organization” and pick up books at school


This is a great fundraiser for our school library. Sales generate free books:

  • 25% earned on sales $200 to $499 (earns from $50 to $124 in books)

  • 50% earned on sales $500 or more (earns from $250 in free books -- and

  • no limit to how many can be earned)

  • Example: a $1,000 book fair would earn the library $500 in free books.


Auction Parking Update

Due to recent construction projects the Auction parking has been reconfigured.
The 2 spots on the right hand side at the top of the hill (near the turn around) are reserved for the 2008/2009 Auction VIP parking winners. The Brazie and O'kain families have been very patient with all the congestion and the limited availability of their parking spots so please be courteous and refrain from parking in this area.
