During Class Time



The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Briarcliff Wednesday, May 12 and Miller Avenue on Monday, May 17, Tuesday, May 18, and Wednesday, May 19. The fair outside to keep everyone safe. If it rains, we will move Briarcliff's to the next day, May 13, and let you know by email, Remind App, and on Facebook. Miller Avenue will have Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20 as raindates. If you haven’t joined your grade's Remind Class yet, you can download the app by searching Remind in the app store and join with the class code @mapto2033 for kindergarten, @mapto2032 for first grade, and @mapto2031 for second grade.

All purchases benefit our school. We accept cash, eWallet, and checks made out to Miller Avenue PTO. Remember there is no official, "Briarcliff PTO" even the Briarcliff fair checks should be made out to Miller Avenue PTO, or we can not cash them. Thank you for your support.

We are also offering the cash-free eWallet digital payment option for students. The eWallet works like a digital gift card. Visit our book fair website to learn more and to create an account. Be sure you are in the correct school's site. Money can't be moved from one fair to the other.
