Book Fair is Next Week, Help Still Needed

Dear Parents,
The Chatham Park Book Fair is taking place next week at the school and this week flyers are being handed out to the kids.  This is an annual fund raiser for Chatham Park.  MANY classes are still in need of parent volunteers to help kids find books at the fair or run a register.   It’s only 1/2 hour during the day.   I’ve included a sign up, so if you can spare some time please add your name to the list.   You can sign up for as many classes as you would like.   There are no restrictions on who can volunteer for which class.
Thank you for taking the time to look over the sign up and be a volunteer.
Beth Morales
HASA -Book Fair Chairperson
**Please note that school policy doesn’t allow for younger siblings to come to the fair while you volunteer.
