Used Book Donations & Spare Change Collection
Need to make room on your shelves for new books? We will be collecting any gently used books outside of the book fair (in the lobby). These books will be donated to local organization in the Ozarks. Also, we will be collecting spare change during the book fair. Scholastic will match all change donated and will use the money to send new books to schools affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The class that brings in the most spare change will win a free dress out day!

Participation is completely optional and free of charge. Additionally, teachers are excited at the prospect of the Business Directory to have as a reference for potential guest speakers in their classrooms &/or field trip opportunities. If you are interested in being listed in the Business Directory, please use the link on the right.
