The Tattered Pages, Northfield Middle School’s student-run bookstore, is still accepting donations for its Third Annual Mother’s Day Sale, beginning May 6.
Donations are welcome at the middle school until the bookstore opens. Needed items include:
- Gently used books (English & Spanish) – popular topics include cooking, gardening, crafts and art
- Stationary, journals and pens
- Candles, mugs and vases
- Picture frames, plants and bookmarks
- Jewelry and key chains
Call the Northfield Middle School Media Center at 507.663.0677 for more information or to arrange for donations to be picked up.
From May 6 through May 10, middle school students will be able to purchase books and gift items using special currency earned at school. Free gift-wrapping will be available during the May 2 kick-off event, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Bookstore currency is earned by students in four ways: by donating books; by working in the bookstore; by doing an exceptional job in the classroom, cafeteria, or on the school bus; or by completing a task from the teacher’s job jar, such as cleaning computers, washing windows, pulling weeds, scraping gum, or vacuuming floors.
