3. Spring Scholastic Book Fair – Volunteers Needed!

Wayside’s Spring Book Fair will be held from April 4th to April 8th. Kids will be shopping at the Fair in the Media Center from 9:30am to 3pm in small groups. Our Book Fair accepts cash, credit card, and check payments. Parents can also set up an E- Wallet account for their kids. It’s a convenient digital account that kids can use to shop at the Book Fair.  To set up one for your child today, please visit our Book Fair Homepage .

Volunteers are needed to help our book fair succeed!  Please use the link to sign up, if you are available. In order to help in-person, volunteers need to upload the proof of vaccination and complete the mandatory MCPS Parent Volunteer Training.

Thank you so much for inspiring kids to read and help the Wayside PTA earn rewards that directly go back to the school and students!

4. Staff Appreciation Week: Seeking Donations!

Staff Appreciation Week is the first week of May, and we want to show our AMAZING Wayside staff how much their hard work means to us. Various treats and surprises are planned for them throughout the week. In addition, we plan to provide each staff member with a gift card. Please show your support by contributing $20 (maximum) gift cards to a store of your choice. Or, please feel free to contribute any dollar amount to be put toward gift cards and other staff appreciation items. Items can be dropped off at Wayside’s front office until April 22nd. Please sign up here to let us know it’s coming! Thanks for showing your appreciation for our staff!
