THE BOOK FAIR CONTINUES!
October 16th thru 19th
Thank you Wyatt Families for a fantastic turnout for Friday’s Family Night Book Fair and Picnic! It was great seeing so many families shopping and dining together.
The Book Fair continues this week with class visits beginning on Monday. You are invited to come and shop with your child during their class visit or come and volunteer to help. You may also send your child with cash or check (payable to Wyatt PTA) and volunteers will help them shop within their budget. Don’t forget to include 8.25% sales tax! See the class schedule below.
Grands Day (Grandparents, Relatives, Aunts and Uncles, Neighbors, Devoted Caretakers) at the Book Fair will be on Wednesday, October 18th. Grands are invited to join your child for lunch and book shopping during their grade level’s lunch period. Grades with a combined lunch and recess period may use recess for additional Book Fair shopping time. Tables will be setup in the school hallway to allow room for additional visitors to sit and eat.
Please visit http://www.scholastic.com/bf/wyatt for volunteer opportunities as we still have many openings during class visits. Don’t forget, all purchases benefit our school and money earned will go towards new books for our library and classrooms as well as the general PTA fund.
