Dear Bernal Parents and Guardians,


The Scholastic Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair will be in the Bernal Library March 12-16th. We will be setting up and hosting the teacher and staff Preview Day on Friday, March 9th. The HSA is looking for volunteers to help with the set up, daily running, and take down of the fair. Please use the link below to sign up to help at the fair. We are also looking for a 7th grade (or incoming 6th grade) parent/guardian that would be interested in being the book fair chairperson next year. This person could be the co-chair with Emily for this fair to 'learn the ropes.' Please email bernalhsapres@gmail.com for more information.


Please keep an eye out for messages on donations for candy and the Teacher Preview Day as well.



Thanks for all your help in supporting our school.



Queridos Padres y Tutores Legales de Bernal:

Hi Bernal Families,


The HSA is getting ready to host the Scholastic Book Fair in the Bernal Library March 12-16th. At the fair last fall we sold candy, to the students, to raise money to purchase books for the library and classrooms. It was such a huge success that we decided to do it again! We are asking families to donate candy for the All for Books program. Not only does your donation help our cause, but Scholastic Book Fairs® will match monetary donations (the amount we raise by selling the candy) with a donation of up to $1 million in books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distrib- utes books to children in need through organizations such as Kids In Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.


The best sellers last fair were Ring Pops, Pop Rocks, Cotton Candy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and sour candy. (All of these candies can be found at Dollar Tree and Costco at good prices.) But the students love all candy. So if you find some great deals after Valentine's Day, please pick up a couple bags. All donations can be dropped off at the front office or at the HSA table at Honors Night (March 7th). Remember to mark the bags "Book Fair.' In the unlikely event we have leftover candy, it will be donated to the student store.


Please look for additional School Loop messages on volunteering at the book fair and donations for the Teacher Preview Day.


Thank you for helping us offer treats for our students and fundraising.



Hola Familias de Bernal:


La HSA se está preparando para celebrar la Feria del Libro Scholastic en la Biblioteca de Bernal, del 12 al 16 de marzo. En la feria de otoño vendimos dulces a los estudiantes para recabar dinero para comprar libros para los salones de clase y la biblioteca. ¡Fue un éxito tan grande que hemos decidido hacerlo otra vez! Pedimos a las familias que donen dulces para el programa All for Books. Su donación no solo ayuda a nuestra causa, sino que Scholastic Book Fairs® igualará los donativos monetarios de hasta un millón de dólares en libros de The Scholastic Possible Fund, que distribuye libros a niños necesitados por medio de organizaciones como Kids in Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., y el National Center for Families Learning.


Los dulces que más se vendieron el año pasado fueron: Ring Pops, Pop Rocks, Cotton Candy, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups y dulces ácidos (sour candy). Esos dulces se venden en Dollar Tree y Costco a bajo precio. A los estudiantes les gustan todo tipo de dulces, así que, si encuentran buenos precios después de San Valentín, por favor compren un par de bolsas. Todas las donaciones se pueden dejar en la oficina escolar o en la mesa de HSA en la Noche de Honores el 7 de marzo. Recuerde escribir “Book Fair” en las bolsas. En el caso improbable de que sobren dulces, los donaremos a la tienda estudiantil.


En School Loop también pondremos noticias sobre como pueden ayudar como voluntarios en la feria y las donaciones de dulces para el día de visionado anticipado para los maestros.


Gracias por ayudarnos a ofrecer dulces a nuestros estudiantes y a recaudar fondos.
