📚 Book Fair Volunteers Needed

30 November - 10 December 2015

The Earhart Book Fair is scheduled to open Tuesday Night, December 1st and run until December 10th, 2015. Starting Nov 30, we need all kinds of volunteer help from putting up posters, set up/clean up and during the fair with book sales. Parent volunteers are needed to make this a successful event!! If you have volunteered before you know that this is a really fun event that the kids look forward to every year!!! Also, approximately 55 cents of every dollar spent at the book fair immediately comes back to the school after the event in the form of books and educational materials. Last year the book fair made over $10,400.00 for the school and we have a goal this year to make $11,000.00, but we cannot do it without your help and support.

Please click to sign up via Google Docs. If signing up via a tablet or smartphone, please be sure to hit the Submit button after entering your information.

Volunteers will receive a $5 book fair credit for every volunteer shift worked. This will be a great opportunities for middle school and high school students to earn community service hours by volunteering at the book fair. Earhart students can also volunteer.

Got questions or need more information about the volunteer role? Please contact Kimberly Skuta via email. Thank you for your help & support of this fun literacy event for the kids.

"...Dream big and accomplish big things."
Please join us in our effort to bring this life size bronze sculpture of Amelia Earhart to our campus. The Davis Family Foundation granted the Frank Bette Center for the Arts a $32,000 gift to commission a life size bronze sculpture of Amelia Earhart to donate to Earhart School. The sculpture, created by Jane deDecker, is complete and ready to be installed. We need additional funds to meet the requirements for a safe installation on a school campus.

You can be a part of this historic event by purchasing an engraved brick that will be used to line the path around the front of the school. A personalized brick is a wonderful way to honor your child's achievements at Amelia Earhart School. The cost of the brick is a $100. Your donation is tax deductible. This is your opportunity to be instrumental in the installation of the first public art on Bay Farm Island.
