Library Book Sponsorship

As you may know, Progress Evenings until last year were sociable events where parents met their child's teachers and caught up with friends old and new. It was also an opportunity to raise money for the school library by offering the sponsorship scheme. I am attaching the list of books bought recently that are available to be sponsored. Some of these titles are replacements for popular titles or new titles to the Library.  The suggested sponsor amount (from £2.00) is part of the price already paid and this extra income will be spent on more books and DVDs and I am also planning to buy more magazine subscriptions. 

 We have now moved to Parentpay and the payment option will go live on Thursday and you will see that you can specify the book you wish to sponsor and the amount to be taken from your account.  If you are spoilt for choice, please consider donating a small amount without giving a book title and this will be attached to a book of my choosing and I will let you know the title.  As always, there will be a bookplate placed in the book.  This can either be written by me or I can invite your child to come into the Library to sign it.  In the event that you choose a book that has already been sponsored, I will contact you to offer an alternative. The Parentpay page will be open from Thursday until Monday 15th March evening.

Please let me know if you would like more information about the books or if you have any questions at library@cheshamgrammar.org 

Thank you so much for your support.
