Dear PJS Families and Friends,

Please join us at the Princeton Junior School Barnes and Noble Fundraiser on Saturday, December 10th at the Princeton Marketfair store. Activities have been scheduled from 10am to 4pm. Please be sure to identify yourself as a PJS book fair supporter at checkout, and a portion of the proceeds from your purchase will be donated to Princeton Junior School! This includes almost EVERYTHING in the store (books, toys & games, music & DVDs/BluRay, cafe items, and NOOK). If you are unable to attend and would like to make purchases to benefit PJS, our school voucher number, 12042222, may be used online during checkout at www.bn.com through December 15th.  

Through this event, we hope to generate excitement and support our children as they grow as readers. This is also an opportunity to share PJS with the local community and highlight our unique programs.  We are fortunate to have author/illustrator, Greg Pizolli scheduled to read from and sign some of his most recent picture books.  This event will begin at 2:00. To pre-order books, please complete this form and return to Lynn Jarvis by Friday, 12/9.  Additional copies will be available for purchase at the event.
