April is a busy month! We have several events coming up that require some parent volunteers and/or contributions. Here’s a quick list:
Book Fair: The week of April 17-20. We need a bunch of parent volunteers to help students choose and buy books. Please sign up if you can come in for an hour or two (ore more!).
Teacher Appreciation Week: We are providing lunch for the teachers and staff on Wednesday, April 26. Please sign up if you can bring something for the lunch, and/or help for an hour or so with set up and clean up.
Talent Show, April 28, 6:30pm: We need some parent volunteers before and after the event for set-up and clean-up. We could also use some volunteers to help rehearsals run smoothly. Please contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The PTO is entirely volunteer-run and depends on our Agnor-Hurt families for support. Thank you!!
Book Fair is coming! The Book Fair will be in the library from April 17-21.
Monday and Tuesday will be preview days; there will be no sales. Wednesday through Friday morning the Book Fair will be open for sales. Here are the official hours:
Wednesday & Thursday: 8:15am-2:15pm
Please note the 11:30am closing on Friday!
Parents: You are welcome to come to the book sale to browse and purchase. If you would like your child to purchase something, you can send them with cash or check. Please don’t send your child with a credit card!
We need parent volunteers! It’s such a fun time to volunteer… help the kids pick out books! Please sign up for as many shifts as you can. Thank you!
All proceeds from the Book Fair are divided among the school library, art, and music programs.
It’s almost Book Fair time again! Planning has begun, and we need YOUR help! Parent (or grandparent) volunteers are needed to help the Book Fair run smoothly. Please sign up for a shift (or two, or three) on our Sign Up Genius.
The Book Fair runs April 17-21, with Monday and Tuesday being preview days (the kids come to look, but no sales). Wednesday through Friday we will be open for sales. Note: The Book Fair will close at 11am on Friday.
Attention Parents! The kids love the spring book fair, and it promises to be a really fun week! But, we need enough adults to help the kids choose books and also run the cash register. Please consider signing up for a shift or two to help out! The Book Fair is all week, April 18-22. We have an online sign up here.
Monday and Tuesday, 8:15am-2:00pm: preview days for kids (looking at books but no selling)
Wednesday and Thursday, 8:15am-2:00pm: selling books during the school day
Friday, 8:15am-12:00pm: closing at noon on Friday, but we still could use volunteers from 12-2 to help pack up.
Thank you very much!
The spring Book Fair will be coming to Agnor-Hurt the week of April 18! This is always fun for the kids and is a great fundraiser for our library, music and art departments. We need some parents to help on those days! Please sign up online to help out. Thank you!
Thank you so much to all the families and teachers who came to the Barnes & Noble book fair on Saturday! It was great to see so many AHES faces!
If you missed it, don’t worry… You can still buy books and benefit our school by buying online. Online sales will count for the Book Fair between November 14-19, as long as you use the school’s code (11674272). Shop at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/
Just a couple of reminders…
This Wednesday, November 11 is Family Fun & Fitness night in the gym. Come with your kids and the whole family for a time of physical activity and fun! 6:30-7:30pm.
Barnes & Noble is hosting a book fair for Agnor-Hurt Elementary school tomorrow (Saturday, Nov 14). Any purchases you make in the store will benefit Agnor-Hurt if you request it at the cash register. They won’t count unless you ask for it! We will have storytimes and a little craft in the kids’ section between 10:00am and 1:30pm, but you can shop all day and still benefit the school. You do not have to have children at Agnor-Hurt to participate! Anyone can shop and ask for their purchase to benefit the school.
Online purchases made between November 14 and November 19 will also count, as long as you use the school’s code (11674272) at checkout.
Next Tuesday, November 17 is the monthly PTO meeting, at 7:00pm in the library. (This is a date change.) Join us if you can to hear Fall Festival and Book Fair results, and give input on upcoming projects. Our meetings only last an hour!
Mark your calendars now for a Book Fair at Barnes & Noble on November 14! Come out and shop, see classmates, have a treat at the coffee shop, and support the school library.
Barnes & Noble will donate a percentage of all sales (if you mention Agnor-Hurt) to the school. All money earned goes to the school library. Online sales will also count, between November 14-19, as long as you use the school’s code.
More details to come as it gets closer.
