There are some amazing prizes up for grabs! 100% of your tax-deductible contribution goes directly to your student's enrichment. That also means no selling and no extra work for you! Every donation makes a difference - and donations are eligible for fantastic raffle prizes! 

See this flyer for more info and check your child’s take home folder for slips to attach to a check, send them to school to be given to their homeroom teachers. Thank you all for your continued support.

Library Volunteers and Donations Sought

Ms. Woznick is looking for parent library volunteers who are willing to come in at the start or end of the day either every week or every other week (rotating with another person). 

Tasks could include shelving books, helping children find books, checking out books, being a responsible adult in the room, doing inventory, displays, processing books (covers, labels, etc.). If you can only commit for the fall, that's fine. She will do a second look at the schedule in December to drop people who can't commit through the winter and add people who are newly available. Volunteers will have to be CORI'd. If you sign up, you'll get information about that.

If you are interested, please sign up here and she will be in touch soon with details. You can also email her at awoznick@beverlyschools.org.
