Book Fair Prep Next Week

It’s Maryvale’s Book Fair time! The time to celebrate reading and support school programs sponsored by the PTA. The Maryvale Book Fair boasts hundreds of new and gently used books in English and French, many of which are selected because of their alignment to the MCPS curriculum.

We cannot put on the Book Fair without your help! Please volunteer, even if only for an hour, and show your support for our kids and our school. Middle school and High school students volunteering for SSL hours should add a comment that they are volunteering for SSL hours. Visit our SignUpGenius to volunteer.

Preparations for the Book Fair begins on Monday October 30th. Setup is Thursday November 2nd. Help is needed every day of the week of November 6th. Classes will visit the Book Fair on Monday November 6th through Wednesday November 8th.

Find recommendations for similar books, create wish lists, and even make purchases for books available online. Purchases are made through your Online Book Fair and are included in your school’s total Book Fair sales. The Book Fairs app is absolutely FREE and is available for the iPad, iPhone, and Android mobile devices.

Contact bookfair@maryvalepta.org with any questions.
