The idea with this event is to remind the children of the importance of recycling and that their junk is somebody else's treasure. The book swap is a great opportunity for them to score some awesome reads just in time for the spring break. What a great learning opportunity for our small (ish) loved ones as it saves money, the environment and it enriches their minds.
We ask you, parents, to have your children go through their dust covered bookshelves and pick out books that are no longer loved and bring them to school to donate to the swap. Both English and French books are welcome and the more books you can donate the better. The will be a box in every classroom to make it easy to drop off.
During the fair, we kindly ask the children to grab one book a day to ensure that everyone who wants gets a book.
This will be great.
When: Tuesday March 10 - Thursday March 12
Lunch time (12-1pm) and after school (3-4pm)
Where: The Tennyson Foyer
What we need from you
