Book Fair FUNdraising Wrap-Up and Thank You!

Our Barnes & Noble Book Fair was held last Saturday and was incredibly successful and fun! We wrapped many gifts for eager shoppers and received $60 in donations at our volunteer wrap station. Several shoppers purchased books for the classrooms from wish lists that our teachers had created. We will also receive more than $500 from Barnes & Noble as a portion of sales - mentioning "Fort River" at checkout prompted the cashiers to credit that shopper's sale towards our fundraiser!

Our online Book Fair ID is 11990926. If you missed our community event on Saturday it's not too late to help Fort River with your book purchases from Barnes & Noble. Simply choose your items online at bn.com/bookfairs and on the payment page enter the our Book Fair ID 11990926 under the "Memberships, Gift Cards & Coupons" section (bottom left) - valid through 12/8. There is NO ADDED COST; Barnes & Noble simply credits Fort River every time this Book Fair ID is used. It's free money for our school! Feel free to share with out of town relatives and friends!

Volunteers really made our day successful for Fort River teachers and students!  Thank you to everyone who volunteered including Mona, Amadee, Liz, Michele, Korinna, Kathleen, Sahar, Diane, Anna, Christiane, Beth, Anna, Allison, Rebecca. Thanks to everyone who came to shop or get gifts wrapped and to anyone we failed to mention!
