Scholastic Book Fair Volunteers


Please consider volunteering a few, one hour shifts at KES’s upcoming Spring “Feelin’ Groovy” Scholastic Book Fair this month.  “Preview Day” will be held on Friday, March 4th from 1:00 – 3:30 PM.

A “Family Night Event” will be held on Friday, March 4th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM.  It’s free and open to all family and friends of KES students!  We will be showing a movie with popcorn and refreshments along with door prizes and fun games for all ages.

The actual book fair will run daily, Monday, March 7th through Friday, March 11th from 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM.  While students will have the opportunity to shop during their class schedule, they can also return before and after class, if needed.

With plenty of volunteers, like you, to help children select books, the transition from classroom to book fair and back will go swiftly and smoothly.  You help also means that students (and parents!) are more likely to be happy with their selections.  Finally, for KES to keep accurate accounts, we will need enough volunteers to handle the large volume of orders for your entire student population.

New this spring, KES PTO is providing all students a free $6 voucher to purchase a book/books for the value of up to $6 at the book fair.  The PTO believes it is important that every child has an opportunity to purchase a book at the book fair.  Here are key facts for YOU to know about how the student book voucher works:

  • Vouchers can only be used to purchase books!  (No trinkets or posters)
  • Vouchers can be used during your class’ shopping event or at a make-up shopping time.  Sorry, it cannot be used at the Family Event.
  • If the total purchase is under $6, the student will forfeit the remaining change.
  • If the total purchase is over $6, the student must provide the difference.
