BOOK FAIR is Wednesday, April 13th from 3:30pm-8:00pm. The Ivy Hill PTA is once again partnering with Scholastic Books to bring you this year’s BOOK FAIR fundraiser! Scholastic brings a wide variety of books, many at discounted prices. Please join us and stock up on some new books to keep the kids reading as the school year comes to a close and summer is just around the corner! Students will have an opportunity to preview the books during class, on Tuesday, April 12th. We need volunteers for both the preview day and the Book Fair. Watch for an email from the school messenger regarding signing up to volunteer. If you have questions regarding volunteer opportunities or general questions about book fair, please contact Rekha Muruvinakombe at email@example.com or Lynn Feder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE: You have until 4/13 to donate your new and gently used books (suitable for K – 6th graders) for the Ivy Hill Book Drive. Collection bins will be located in the Commons area. All books will be donated to Bernie’s Book Bank to increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers & school age children throughout Chicagoland. Please put your books in a plastic bag with your name and grade on it before placing them in the bins as we will be holding a raffle for prizes at the end of the drive. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Derochowski, email@example.com
