Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair is a parent/volunteer book sale held annually in the fall or winter.  The proceeds provide books for the Birthday Book Club.  Please see the Scholastic Book Fair link in the Volunteer section for information on how you can lead or help with this committee.  


This annual tradition is held on the Arbor View grounds soon after the start of the new school year.  Historically, it was coordinated by fourth grade families and used to raise funds for the fifth grade Outdoor Education trip.  This has changed due to funding procedures at the District level, and now any funds raised are used for the PTC's overall programs.  Enjoy a barbeque picnic while hanging out with friends, playing games, entering raffles, and participating in planned activities.   Please see the Septemberfest link in the Volunteer section for information on how you can lead or help with this committee.  In 2018-2019, this was changed to the "Back to School Bash", and merged with Welcome Day.


Clothing and various other items supporting Arbor View's Roadrunner theme are sold to promote school spirit and pride.  Children are encouraged to don their spirit wear every Friday.  Please see the Spiritwear link in the Volunteer section for information on how you can lead or help with this committee.
