Rocky Run Elementary School’s Barnes and Nobel Bookfair

Saturday, December 17th from 11-3 is our first ever Barnes & Noble Fundraiser at the Central Park location.

Our 4th and 5th grade chorus is set to perform, there will be readings by our very own teachers, arts and crafts activities, and our school will earn money all at the same time.  RRES will receive 10% of sales; and 15% of sales if we have over $2000 in sales…customers must specify they are with RRES.  So, if you have kids, family or friends on your Christmas list that love to read…this is the perfect opportunity to raise money as you buy items you already were planning on purchasing.

Cafe purchases will also count towards our sales.  The store sells Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes!  These can be frozen, which makes the perfect holiday dessert.  Just visit the cafe counter during your visit on 12/17 for the cheesecake purchases.

Online shopping at www.barnesandnoble.com is also available from 12/17-12/22.  Simply enter the online ID:  11874740 at checkout.  It is prompted at the payment page of checkout, at the very bottom of the page.  Then RRES will get credit for the online sale!!

Pass the word to your family, friends, and neighbors to join us in store or online!  Mark your calendars now.

We could use some help for the various activity stations during the event.  If you are available for an hour, please consider signing up here:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080e49a4ae2ea13-barnes

As always, thank you for your continued support of RRES.
