All For Books Raffle

Posted Apr 20, 2018 | Category: Uncategorized






Win a basket of books!


Each $1 donation to our All for Books program gives you a chance to win a basket of books from the Ames PTA Fall Book Fair!

What is All for Books?

By donating $1 or loose change in any amount (or by making a small donation by credit card during check out), you help us:

  • Purchase books for classroom libraries and for children in need in our local area
  • Give more children easier access to books
  • Help get kids reading, and get kids reading more

The All for Books money we collect also helps readers beyond our school and community. Scholastic Book Fairs® matches monetary donations with a donation of up to $1 million in books from The Scholastic Possible Fund, which distributes books to children in need through organizations such as Kids In Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.


Your act of kindness helps bring more knowledge, imagination, and love for reading into the lives of our students.

Remember to shop the Book Fair Wednesday, April 25th and Thursday, April 26th!
