Volunteer @ BookFest
There’s been great participation from the Elmdale community, but we could certainly use even more help!
SORTING!!! Come any day, any time (during school and Mothercraft hours) onto the stage in the gym, and help sort some books. Everyone is welcome. The stage has signs, so that you know where to put the books. Even 5 minutes can really help. Parent volunteers must sign in and out at the front office.
VOLUNTEER for a shift during the sale. February 26, 27 & 28 we need you to help out either on cash or the bake table. Shifts are short, you can pick whatever times fit your schedule. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e094aaea82aa75-elmdale8 (book sale)
BAKING – Many people love buying a treat when shopping for books. Any baked goods are appreciated. Whether home made of store bought, it must be NUT FREE. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e094aaea82aa75-elmdale9 (bake sale)
**There are special Primary and Junior Parent sorting nights, as well as family set-up and tear down, the week leading up to BookFest (see book sale signup genius link above) – a chance to get to know some of the other parents and families while helping out.**
