It's Time to Give Your Books a New Home!

It’s a tradition to send our 5th grade students on a special class trip at the end of their Folwell years. This year, they will be going to Eagle Bluff Learning Center for an overnight adventure.
In order to raise money, offset the cost of the trip, and make it possible for all 5th graders to participate, two traditional fundraisers will take place the first week of March:  the Used Book Sale and a Basketball Game featuring fifth-grade students vs. teachers. We hope you will join us for these events that are fun for the entire Folwell community!

The 5th graders are collecting donations of gently-used books for all ages, as well as family DVDs (G or PG), and children’s story and music CDs, to prepare for the sale. Check your shelves and clear the clutter!
Books/DVDs can be dropped off by the Office foyer from February 4th  – 25th in boxes waiting for your contribution.

The donated books/CDs/DVDs will be sold at the annual Folwell Used Book Sale during week of March 2nd-6th. Folwell students and their families will have opportunities to purchase the used books before and after school (8:45am – 9:15am and 3:3

0pm – 4:00pm) and during lunch (12:00pm – 1:00pm) Monday 2nd – Thursday 5th. Books will also be on sale during the Wellness Night February 27th, at the 5th grade fundraising basketball game on Thursday March 5th , and for clearance prices prior to school Friday March 6th. We will sell most items for $1, with specialty items marked slightly higher.

We hope to raise more than $800 through the used book sale and are grateful for your donations!
