Our Room Reps also working with our teachers to collect a “wish list.”  When we receive it, they will be creating a Sign-Up Genius if you wish to “donate” a book to the classroom.  This will take the place of the carousel that is usually at the physical book fair every year for teachers.  Please be on the look out for the Sign up Genius email coming your way soon.
