PTE is hosting a Follett Book Fair in November!
Supporting a love for reading is critical to student success. Supporting your school is just as important. The Follett Book Fair encourages your child's reading habits, builds their personal libraries, and raises funds for the school, all at the same time.
Book Fair Dates: November 18 - 25
Book Fair Hours: 8am to 2:30pm
Special Hours & Events
Thursday, Nov. 21: 5pm – 7:30pm Author Visit & ORFF Ensemble Concert
Monday, Nov. 25: 2:30-6:30pm for Grandpersons Day
You (or other family members) can visit www.follettgift.com to purchase a Follett gift card for your student. And don’t forget your teacher! Please stop by the teacher Wish List bins to purchase a book for their classroom library. It makes a great appreciation or holiday gift!
The book fair would not be possible without volunteers to help! If you’d like to volunteer during the book fair, there are both day and evening shifts available. Please contact Adrienne Hoagland via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
