Drum roll please...The (unofficial) total for the 3rd Annual SMPS Used Book Sale fundraiser is $5500!! Amazing! Thank You!
It truly takes a village to successfully complete an event like our Used Book Sale.
A big Thank you to all of the families and teachers who donated high quality, current-interest books for the sale. Our sale couldn't be as successful without these donations.
To all of the volunteers who spend countless hours sorting and organizing the donations on the school stage between Sept 20th and Oct 20th, your dedication cannot be measured and we appreciate it.
To all of the volunteer students and parents who helped to set-up tables and move heavy boxes on books on Wednesday, Oct 17th to prepare for the sale, we couldn't have done it without you.
To all of the volunteers who helped to greet classes, answer questions, re-organize books, manage the cash table, and oversee the sale during busy days and evenings on Oct 18-20, thank you for sharing your time to help us.
And finally, to all of the students, teachers, families and community neighbours who came out to buy books during our sale, thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy your new books!
We are already looking forward to the 4th Annual Used Book Sale in 2019!
NOTE: There are still 65+ boxes of books leftover from the sale. They are available for FREE on the stage steps until Tuesday morning, Oct 23rd. Please help yourself.
(PS - Save a box in your basement, and put aside those great books for us until Sep 2019!) ... See MoreSee Less
