The Earhart Book Fair opens in December after fall recess, pleaes join us in the M/U Room & to help support literacy at our school.
This is a really fun event that the kids look forward to ever year. Also, approximately 55¢ per dollar spent at the book fair comes back to the school in the form of books & educational materials. Last year the book fair made over $9,400 for the school, & our goal for this year is to reach $10,000.
Parent volunteers are needed to make this a successful event! This is also a great opportunity for middle school kids to earn community service hours! You can sign-up to volunteer via the real time link to a Google spreadsheet.
If you are entering your information via an iPad or Smart Phone, then please hit the Submit button.
Volunteers will receive a $5 book fair credit for every volunteer shift worked.

Safeway eScrip Changes
Please be aware that Safeway has made a significant change to their eScrip donations. As of November 1st, 2013, Safeway will NOT donate to eScrip for purchases made with a credit card.
Earhart will only receive eScrip contributions for purchases paid with one of the following payment options:
Cash, Check, Debit Card, Fast Forward Debit Card, SmartCheck,
Safeway Gift Cards, WIC & CalFresh
Safeway's contribution to eScrip is a sizable portion of the Earhart PTA budget. Many families use credit cards at Safeway and we recognize this change is not ideal. However, please consider using an accepted payment option at Safeway to prevent impacting our PTA budget.
Please forward this message to your friends and families who support Earhart by shopping at Safeway.
