Each year, the PTO supports Mr. Lee, our fantastic BKE Librarian, with the Scholastic Book Fair.  The sale is held in the school library in the evenings during parent-teacher conferences, and proceeds allow Mr. Lee to purchase books, secure author visits, and update library furniture.  We need help from a few volunteers to assist our PTO team during the sale.
