Hey ICS families!
The Scholastic Book Fair is next week! This is a great way to get your kids into their reading routines by letting them shop for some awesome new books for their home libraries. Scholastic provides us with a diverse selection of books for all reading levels–and quite a few in Spanish, too!
Families can shop the fair during school hours and at Back to School Nights. Families can also shop the on-line book fair, starting on 9/6 and ending on 9/19, by going to www.scholastic.com/fair click on “Find a Fair” and choose Independence Charter School.
PTA is looking for a few volunteers to help out during the fair. This is a really fun way to spend some time at ICS, and if you plan it right, you can help your child shop when they come down with their class–just check with your teacher to see when they are visiting the fair! We are also in need of some help on Thursday evening, during our Middle School Back to School Night.
Come help out, get to know some of your fellow ICS families and maybe buy a few more books! Here is the link to sign up as volunteer: Scholastic Book Fair Volunteer Sign-up.
See you at the fair!
Make sure you are cleared to volunteer!
ICS volunteers who will interact directly with students must obtain a few background checks. You can find the links and instructions here. For most people the process does not cost anything, and the clearances will last for five years. Email Tr. Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about how to obtain them!
