The H&S Used Book Sale is coming on February 24 and 25! We sell used books (adult, children, textbooks and everything in between), puzzles, music (CDs and vinyl), movies, games, and video games.
Donations can be dropped off now at collection boxes in the lower school lobby, the lower school preschool/PK area, the MS/US theater lobby by the Java Nook, and inside the MS/US Arches entrance up until the morning of February 22. New this year, we ask for any extra reusable bags, particularly Scholastic Book Fair bags. You may park and walk in your donations during drop-off/pick-up times.
From February 22 to 25, we also need volunteers to help sort and sell the books for the sale. Whether you can commit to a time slot or just pop by for 15 minutes to sort books, please click here to sign up. We would love you to join us!
If you have questions or can volunteer help with the sale, please contact Used Book Sale clerks Megan Ede and Katie Van Druff. Thank you!

Happy Panda Day is such a great send off to Spring Break--lower school students met with Ivy the therapy dog, made friendship bracelets, hunted for leprechauns, and practiced yoga, all in the comfort of their pajamas!
Thank you to all who came out and supported the Home & School Used Book Sale! Over 55 volunteers - adults and students alike - moved, sorted, and sold books, games, CDs and DVDs, and had a great time in the process. Shoppers found new books to add to their libraries, with one staff member saying it was her favorite day of the year!
