Volunteering 2022-23 School Year

Book Fair is the primary source of funds for the RPPS School Council. In a normal year, this amazing event requires more than 4,000 volunteer hours each year. And we ask for help from every RPPS family.  But, while we are getting back to normal, the situation is still not clear what it means for an in person sale.  Having said that, if we are allowed to hold the in person Book Fair in November 2022 we need to have volunteers in place on all of our Teams!

Urgent! Volunteers Needed! Book Collecting Begins Soon!

A lot of changes are happening quickly at Book Fair and we are preparing to begin book collecting once again!

This is an exciting time for the Committee but we are very short on volunteers to help with the massive influx of books we are expecting. Please contact us today if you can help with book drop offs, book bin emptying, book sorting and transportation.

The current jobs will require volunteers who can lift boxes of books and carry them into the storage rooms.

Email rockcliffeparkbookfair@gmail.com today and let us know if you can help. Work may begin in as little as a week’s time so this call is extremely urgent.

Thank you all for supporting Book Fair! We’ve missed you and look forward to seeing you. Please note that all Book Fair volunteers must be fully vaccinated to volunteer in person (2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines recognized in Canada).
