BCSD Community Book Fair for Hurricane Sandy Victims
Last October, many downstate schools were highly affected by Hurricane Sandy, causing significant damage to their buildings and equipment. BCSD's individual schools reached out through Roots & Wings program to lend assistance, and through this work, became aware of the need for new library books at several Staten Island public schools.
On Tuesday May 21 residents will come together for our district wide budget vote. This year, we will take advantage of our annual gathering to host a one day Book Fair to help rebuild the storm damaged collection at PS 38, the George Cromwell school in Staten Island. The fair will be a Buy One Get One event. Families can buy one book for themselves, and select another book to donate. Scholastic has generously offered to ship the books for us.
To support this fair, volunteers are needed. First please read more about the event [PDF]. Nancy Smith of Glenmont Elementary’s PTA will coordinate volunteers and if you are available to volunteer or to help with pre-fair communications or planning, please send the volunteer slip [PDF] back to school with your child or email your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
