Congratulations to Mrs. Merryman

From the announcement of Mrs. Merryman winning free books for her class.

Full of so much excitement, we present Bulk Bookstore’s first ever contest winner to receive free books for the classroom. The response to our first giveaway in March 2016 was huge – and we thank all of the teachers who committed to the process, kept their fingers crossed, and keep the love of reading alive in their classrooms each and every day. Because of this, you are ALL Bulk Bookstore winners to us!

Without further adieu, we present to you Miss Chandra Merryman of Shafer Middle School in Nashville, Tennessee. A dedicated teacher and reader for over 18 years, Miss Merryman currently has the incredible responsibility of bringing her love for all things literature to all 90 of her 8th grade reading/language arts students.

There has been some confusion concerning the fundraiser packet, and we would like to offer these clarifications:

  • One item sold will get a student into the Glow Party
  • The first three items sold will get a lanyard and a ring
  • Each additional three items sold will get another ring
  • When the ninth item is sold the student will receive a pair of glow glasses and glow necklace at the Glow Party
  • The prize redemption coupons are misprinted concerning the number of items to sell for another ring
  • Please do NOT send in the prize redemption coupon 
  • Fundraiser money is being accepted daily
  • Rings and lanyards are being given out when money is turned in 
  • Please send in the order form when turning in money. We will take note of what is paid for, and send it back home 

If you have any questions, please email Mr. Clark.
