The Scholastic Book Fair will be arriving soon in the HES library! Open daily, during school hours and parent teacher conferences starting Nov. 13, with a Family Night on Thursday, Nov. 15, from 5-8 p.m. The public, parents and friends are invited to attend anytime during these hours and during parent teacher conference days.

We are looking for volunteers! If you love books and kids, it's a great way to volunteer.

Annually, the Book Fair earns roughly $4,500 for the PTO that goes to support activities at both HES and Bromfield. We also earn about $1,500 in books and supplies for the HES Library, as well as having around 350 new books donated to individual classrooms. This is a great fundraiser but we can't do it without our parent volunteers! Please consider donating some time to help us out. Contact Diane Bishop, Book Fair co-chairman, at debishop@me.com.
