NEHS Book Fair at Barnes and Noble Sunday, April 14th

PORTA High School’s National English Honor Society (NEHS) will hold its annual book fair at Barnes & Noble this Sunday. April 14th, from 1-4 pm.  Proceeds from the book fair go to support NEHS’s scholarship fund, which awards at least one scholarship to a graduating senior NEHS member.


NEHS president Katie Jacobus points out “We do great activities for the kids who attend, and the benefit for the seniors, who have worked in the community all through high school, is a real plus.”


The book fair includes a storytime for youngsters every half hour starting at 1;00, a variety of spring-themed crafts every half hour starting at 1:15, and a jelly bean trivia contest open to everyone throughout the book fair. Visitors can also look forward to decorating paper eggs to put in a giant basket and playing “Pin the Tail on the Bunny.”


People who can’t attend the book fair can visit BN.com from 4/15/19-4/19/19 and enter bookfair ID 1245025 at checkout.  That way, a percentage of the purchases will benefit NEHS.
