Spring Book Fair, Volunteers Needed!
Hello RMS Families.
We know that back in elementary school life was simpler; gel pens, a real recess, and less homework. Those were also the years where you often had books read to you, and there was time set aside each day for you to browse in the library. Well, we can’t bring back elementary school, but for one fun week, you’ll get to browse the library to your hearts content at the annual RMS Spring Book Fair!!
Bring your open mind, sense of adventure, and a little bit of cash to get an awesome new book or two. Each purchase gives you a gift for yourself and helps support our school -win:win!!!! We could also use a few parent volunteers to help out, so please support the school as well by pitching in if you can!
The book fair will be the last week of February.
We also need volunteers to help out with the book fair. Please sign up at the link below:
Thanks so much at hope to see you at the Book Fair!
