Our Book Fair is Coming!
 
Crocker’s annual Book Fair fundraiser will be held in conjunction with local and independent bookstore Books, Inc. again this year.  The Fair will be in the Multi-Purpose Room on February 2nd (Tues) and February 3rd (Wed).  Trading hours are 8:00 am – 6:30 pm each day.  A portion of all proceeds will support our PTA programs at Crocker.  Hundreds of wonderful books will be on hand – picture books, early readers, graphic novels, chapter books, novels, best sellers, cookbooks, fiction and non-fiction – something for everyone…no matter your age!
 
Writer/illustrator Jim Averbeck (A Hitch at the Fairmont, One Word from Sophia) will be speaking to our children during school hours on Tuesday, February 2nd.  His books will be available for purchase during the Fair and Jim will be signing books Tuesday after school in the Multi-Purpose Room.
 
As in years past, the teachers will compile their book “wish lists.”  Each teacher will select 10-20 books from the Fair that they hope to add to their classroom.  These treasures will be set aside in marked baskets and can be purchased for your teachers.  We’ll take care of making sure they are delivered to their classrooms as soon as the Fair is over.  
 
And, finally, we can’t pull the Fair off without the help of volunteers.  If you are available to set-up/breakdown or to run a cash register, please follow this link to sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040b44a9a929aa8-book.
