Save the date… Sunday, December 3.
Do some holiday shopping, treat your family to a Chipotle dinner, and help the school all in one shebang! Please join us on Sunday, December 3 for Books and Burritos… All day, you can shop at Barnes & Noble (at Barracks’ Road) and they will donate a percentage of your sale to the school. (You must mention this to the cashier when you pay.)
Then, between 5 and 9pm, if you purchase food from Chipotle, they will donate a percentage of that sale to the school! (Again, mention it to the cashier.)
You can shop the Barnes & Noble book fair online AND in-store for an additional 5 days! Between December 4-8, if you shop online, use the Bookfair ID 12150025. In store, just let the cashier know that you want your purchases to count toward Agnor-Hurt’s book fair.
We are looking for volunteers to help wrap gifts, share information at our wish list table, and support children at the art and craft table at our Barnes & Noble Book Fair from 2-6 p.m. Volunteers can contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org
These items are still up for grabs from the Fall Festival Silent Auction!
