On Thursday, November 29th from 3:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., the Barnes and Noble located at Brookfield Square Mall will host a book fair for St. John Vianney. A percentage of all the profits from merchandise sold will go to the school. The more items purchased, the greater percentage of sales that go to the school.
While it’s a great way to stock up on Christmas gifts — from books to music to novelty items — it’s also an opportunity to experience some of the vast talent of SJV students. The Shamrock Choir, the Band and the String Orchestra will all be performing at the store throughout the evening. Students’ artwork will also be displayed.
Principal Pam Pyzyk, Fr. Phil Bogacki and art teacher Ms. Bach will be there to read holiday stories. Special guests Jack and Annie from the Magic Treehouse series will also be on hand for free photos.
You can begin or end your shopping-and-entertainment extravaganza at Barnes and Noble with dinner at Red Robin, right next door, who is returning 15% of your meal cost back to SJV if you eat there between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m that evening.
Make your gifts this year give joy to more than just the gift recipient — buy some items at the Barnes and Noble St. John Vianney Book fair and you’ll help our Home and School Association continue its long tradition of improving the school’s community and education.
Online purchases will count towards our total. Visit BN.COM/bookfairs between November 29th and December 4th and enter Boofair ID 10900967 at checkout.
