Diversity Book Fair 1/29-1/30

Holmes PTO would like to formally invite parents from across the District to its Diversity Book Fair taking place next week during conferences. They have partnered with Anderson and the Oak Park Public Library to bring our families strong titles that reflect authors and protagonists that share Oak Park’s diverse and rich backgrounds. This year’s book fair mission is to highlight and intentionally offer books that feature diversity in race, ability, culture, religion, gender identity, family make-up, and experience – more than 70% of the titles offered being diverse, is our goal.

They welcome your school’s families to join us next week on Wednesday and Thursday during our community sale hours. The flyer is attached. holmespto

Eagle Extras Wednesday Volunteer

Eagle Extras needs a new volunteer (or two) to handle onsite supervision on Wednesdays for the upcoming session. (Our volunteer from last session can’t do it this time). Please help us spread the word! The person would receive a credit for the average price of a class, so they can essentially have their kid take a class for free (or nearly free)! They would be responsible for checking kids in and out, and being available onsite for any issues or emergencies during the class times. The time commitment is 2:25 – 4:10 each Wednesday.

Contact eagleextras@irvingpto.com if you can help!
