Bookswap is coming! Donations will begin on October 15-18

October 15 - October 18

Bookswap promotes literacy among our earliest readers, recycles books among Lab families and lends us the opportunity to share what we have with others.

Parent volunteers (70+) collect around 10,000 books from students in grades N3–8 and sort the books into categories. Teachers in grades N3–5 bring their classrooms into the Bookswap, and children take home their “new” books. All remaining books will be donated to Beavis Elementary School.

Book collection: ESH & LS, October 15–18 in individual classrooms (books may also be brought in October 11 during parent/teacher conferences).

For every book brought in, students will receive a ticket from their teacher that can be swapped for a different book of their choosing or deposited in the raffle for one of several new books on display at Bookswap. Note: Each classroom may have a different swapping process. Parent volunteers make Bookswap possible. Please sign up to volunteer. You can sign up to help with the collection of books, with the sorting, or during the actual swapping. For more information please contact  Ximena Colunga, Melissa McMahill  or Catherine Rosenberg.

Book collection: MS & HS, October 15–18, 7:30–8:30 a.m., U-High Lobby

Middle School students will participate in an inter-grade challenge and an individual advisory challenge. Books may be brought to the Gordon Parks Arts Hall loading dock outside of morning collection times.  Parent volunteers make Bookswap possible. Please sign up to volunteer. You can sign up to help with the collection of books, with the sorting, or during the actual swapping. For more information please contact  Ximena Colunga, Melissa McMahill  or Catherine Rosenberg.
