Barnes & Noble has been a Join-a-School business partner to APS for many years.  The Educator Receptions are always highly anticipated and this fall’s event was no exception.  Tea & Technology  offered after school tea, treats, extra discounts, and resources like best uses for the Table/ereader technology in the classroom.  Teachers at the event were treated to bags of giveaways, raffles and a chance to win special prizes, including a NOOK Tablet or a $500 B & N gift card. 

Barnes & Noble also offers donations, if available, when requested by teachers for activities supporting literacy and closing the achievement gap.  The company also offers Bookfairs in store and online at bn.com/bookfairs .  Sally Newcomb, Community Relations Manager at the Coronado store, can also help teachers plan exciting store events and provide materials and ideas to promote a book fair. 

Barnes & Noble may also help with purchases for classroom required reading or wish lists.  Staff can help teachers make the ordering process a little easier. Thanks for supporting literacy activities and events in APS!
