Volunteering Summer 2021

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 this isn’t a normal year.  This summer, we are preparing for a virtual 60th Anniversary of Book Fair in November 2021.  

What can I do to help and when?

There are many ways to help: whatever time you can offer, we’ll gratefully fill with a job!

This summer we’ll be collecting books, sorting and organizing by category in an attempt to build up inventory.  Specific drop off and sorting days will be posted in July and August.  Volunteers are now required to read our Volunteer Handbook and agree to our Book Fair Volunteer Code of Conduct.  

The Book Fair Volunteer Handbook can be found HERE.

Please consider joining the Book Fair Standing Committee (BFSC): we are urgently seeking a Co-Chair, an Administrative Team Lead and a Café Team Lead.  You must be a parent at Rockcliffe Park Public School to sit on the Committee Executive but community members are welcome to fill other Committee positions (60th Anniversary Committee, Book Bin Team, Transportation Team, Sorting Team, etc.).  We would love your help to shape the fundraiser and set Book Fair up to go “live” again in 2022!

If you have questions or require more information on volunteering, please email us at info@rockliffeparkpsbookfair.com.
