Bookstore Volunteer Opportunities 

Looking for a fun way to get involved and interact with the students? The bookstore has a few remaining shifts available for the 2018-2019 school year. If you are interested in volunteering or would like to be added to the substitute list, please contact Kirsten Schultz, JBS bookstore co-chair. Also, make sure to start the year off right with your JBS fanwear favorites.

Potpourri 2019 is months away, yet there is so much work to be done. We have just a few spaces left needing to be filled with department co-chairs. This is a fun job and will give you the opportunity to meet other JBS families. The spirit throughout Potpourri is uplifting and invigorating and will have a lasting impact. If you are interested in finding out more, please reach out, and we will be happy to answer any questions.

We are so very excited about the 2019 sale and encourage you to stay tuned for exciting Potpourri announcements to come. In the meantime, we invite all parents to join us in the pink garage adjacent to the field hockey field for one of our sorts:

As always, please keep those donations coming! Stop by the trailer at the Clayton Road entrance and unload your gently used clothing, sporting goods, toys, household items and more.

This sale is full of treasures for the community. Last year, we had an enormous amount of compliments and appreciation from shoppers. Some people who attend Potpourri plan and save the entire year. It’s a time when the community benefits, and a time when the Burroughs families should be very proud. Please join us to make 2019 the best year yet!

Thank you!
