Round up your gently used kids’ books for Thoreau PTA’s Book Rodeo! It’s on Thursday, December 7, 10 am-4 pm. A flier with details and a donation form is coming your way this week!

You can put your books into the red bin just outside the office anytime between Monday, November 20 and Monday, December 4. Please make sure they are K-5 age-appropriate, and if you need help in your search, the top 5 most requested books are: joke books, graphic novel/comic books, dog/cat/horse/pet books, sports books and cookbooks. For every 2 books you donate you get 1 book buck!

Last but not least, we can use your help to make this event a success for all kiddos at Thoreau, specifically with setup the afternoon before, helping kids and parents choose books at the event, and cleanup immediately afterward. Check out the volunteer spots here:

This is a fun event where we aim to get as many books as we can into the hands of all Thoreau students. We hope to see you there!
