The VMS Book Fair is Back!!

We invite you to visit our Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that brings to our school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids and adults want to read.

The Book Fair is a great way to encourage the love of Reading while at the same time giving back to the school. All profits from this event are given back to the school to help buy new books for the VMS Library.

Book Fair Dates and Times:
Monday, April 3, 2017
Tuesday, April 4, 2017
8:00 AM to 3:15 PM both days - students will have the opportunity to visit the Book Fair during their reading class and after school

Additional After School and Evening Hours for the Entire Family:
Monday, April 3, 2017 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 after school to 4:00 PM

If you would like your child to have the opportunity to purchase a book(s) during the Book Fair event, please send your child to school with money (cash or check will be accepted). Checks please make payable VMS PTO.

Hope to see you there!
