It’s time for YCS Spring Book Fair! BOOK FAIR BEGINS SATURDAY, MARCH 21ST THROUGH MARCH 27th.
Family Shopping and 5th Grade Bake Sale – SATURDAY, MARCH 21rst 10am-1pm
Bring the whole family to YCS to browse and shop the book fair at your leisure. There will be a Bake Sale so you can purchase snacks and raise some money for the PTA!
KIDS SHOPPING – Classes will be attending the Book Fair during school hours next week. Look for your child’s shopping time in his/her backpack.
PLEASE REMEMBER…THERE IS SALES TAX on everything. A good rule of thumb is to add an extra dollar for every $10 your child plans to spend. The average paperback with tax costs about $8 and hardcover books range from $14 to $18. Specialty books – like Guinness Book of World Records – can cost substantially more. We round up to the nearest dollar to make it easier to give change.
