Greetings from the MacArthur Library

 

The Big Mac Scholastic Book Fair starts on Dec. 11th and ends Dec. 15th, but we will have a pre-sale preview session for teachers and parents on Friday, Dec. 8th from 12:30-3:30.  So if you plan to attend a conference with your child’s teachers on the afternoon of Dec. 8th, you can also attend our book fair.   And of course, you can always go to our Online book fair right here:  http://www.scholastic.com/bf/macarthurmiddleschool3.

We still need volunteers to help out with the fair.  Please click here for the sign-up genius:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f48aaac29a5f94-scholastic . Thanks so much PTA.
