Walk/Bike to School... will be held on May 10, 2017
Test Prep Book Donations Needed... The May 2017 PTA Free Book Celebration is preparing to be an amazing event again this year. We are however in need of Test Prep Books. Please contact Caroline Furry firstname.lastname@example.org or Caroline Stabb email@example.com.
The Book Celebration Committee members assist in managing the event. This is ONLY a 15-20 hour commitment over 5 months. Most of the work can be done from home.
· Hang posters at your school advertising the event
· You would volunteer to sit on a subcommittee with another parent (ie refreshments, outreach, communication, publicity, entertainment or giveaways). Each area has 2 volunteers. The teams of 2 works together to complete their assignment (ie order backpacks for the event or solicit stop and shop for refreshments).
· Each year ONE school would coordinate a collection at their respective home school. ie. RW would collect books for our event in 2018, RW would not collect again for another 5 years. The year your respective school collects would be the only year that maybe you would reach a 20 hour commitment. You would not be on your own, the entire school PTA and Book Celebration Committee would support this book drive at RW.
· Attendance at the Book Celebration event. Event runs from 10 am to noon. Set up begins at 8:30 am that day.
