Used Book Sale Fundraiser

Do you have children’s books just waiting to be passed on?
Do you want the opportunity to buy gently-used reading material for your home?
The Folwell Used Book Sale is the event for you!
It’s a tradition to send our 5th grade students on a two-day adventure to Eagle Bluff at the end of their Folwell years.
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 March 6-10: the Used Book Sale and a 5th Graders vs. Teachers Basketball Game.

To prepare for the sale, the 5th graders are collecting the following items February 1-28:
-       gently-used books for grade school, middle school, and young adults
-       family DVDs (G or PG) – NO VHS tapes please
-       children’s story and music CDs
-       grade school board games

Check your shelves and clear the clutter!  Boxes in the main school foyer will be waiting for your contribution.

Items will be sold at the annual Folwell Used Book Sale during the week of March 6-10.  Shopping opportunities:
-       Before and after school (8:45am – 9:15am and 3:30pm – 4:00pm) and during lunch (12:00pm – 1:00pm)
-       During the 5th graders vs. teachers fundraiser basketball game on Thursday evening, March 9th

We hope to raise more than $700.00 through the used book sale.  We are grateful for your donations!
