Help us make this year's TCMS Scholastic Book Fair a fantastic experience for our students. We need help from volunteers each day of the fair to help restock and neaten our displays, to greet our students and help them find items, and to help our shoppers navigate the checkout process. Our fair runs for an entire week, March 18 - 22, and on Tuesday March 19, we are open until 5:30. If you have a few hours available to help us during the fair, please contact our Family Engagement Coordinator, Mrs. Sabrina Maynard.
