From Alexandria City Public Schools:
Help support Mount Vernon Community School this Saturday, Dec. 3, during the school's Bookfair at the Potomac Yard Barnes & Noble, 3651 Jefferson Davis Highway, Alexandria. As you are buying your holiday books, toys and gifts, just mention Mount Vernon Community School and a portion of the sale will go to the school's PTA. Gift wrapping will also be available, courtesy of parent volunteers.
The event will include holiday performances by students, story reading by the principal and vice principal and a scavenger hunt. The special events will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Dec. 3 also is Educator Appreciation Day at the store. Every educator with a Barnes & Noble Educator Card will receive a 25-percent discount on purchases made that day.
