It's Time to Recycle Your Old Books!

It’s almost time for the fifth-grade students’ big fundraising efforts for their class trip to Eagle Bluff Learning Center.  We are hoping to raise money in order to offset the cost of the trip, making it possible for all students to participate.  The used book sale and basketball game featuring fifth-grade students vs. teachers are the two traditional fundraisers taking place during the first week of March.  We hope you will join us for these events that are fun for the entire Folwell community!

In order to prepare for the used book sale, we 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.  All students and families will have an opportunity to purchase books from the used book sale during the first week of March.  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, so if you are ready to clear off your shelves, we will be grateful for your donations!

Feel free to drop off contributions in the boxes located in the foyer at Folwell.
