Wild West Book Fair: Volunteers Needed!

Are you ready to saddle up and read?! It's almost time for the Wild West Book Fair at Wallburg Elementary, and we need YOUR help!

***Click here to access the Volunteer Sign Up Schedule***

The fair will run from Friday, December 1st to Friday, December 8th. We will need volunteers at each of the two-hour time slots. 

Set-up will take place in the afternoon on Thursday, November 30 from 12:00-2:00 PM, with the Teacher Preview right after starting at 3:15 PM. The Teacher Preview gives our wonderful teachers a chance to browse the fair before anyone else and pick out books they would love for their classroom. During this time, we feed them themed snacks and offer chances to win Scholastic Dollars and other fun prizes. We LOVE our teachers and want to thank them for ALL they do for our students and community every day!

If you are able to help with Set Up/Teacher Preview, that would be so awesome! 

Students are browsing for the first three days, and I would love to have at least 1 person per shift to help me with before and after school purchases, straightening the shelves, helping students find books and fill out Wish Lists, etc. 

The purchasing days will require 2 people per shift to run registers, help students locate books, straighten shelves, etc. 

Breakfast with Santa: PTO is holding their annual Breakfast with Santa event on Saturday, December 2nd from 8:30 to 11:00 AM. The book fair WILL be open during that time, so I will need additional volunteers that day as well to help run registers, help students locate books, straighten shelves, etc.

FAMILY NIGHT: Family Night will be on Tuesday, December 5th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. 

If you can help out, I would be SO SO SO appreciative! Please sign up for as many slots as you'd be able to work. If something comes up and plans need to change--no worries! That happens and I totally understand. Please contact me at or call the school at (336) 769-2921 as soon as you know that you will not be able to work your shift.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me! 

Thank you so much!,
