Most years, McGaugh PTA puts on a Book Fair in partnership with Scholastic. Volunteers transform the McGaugh Auditorium into a book store for students and parents to visit and see the latest literature. This year was no ordinary year due to COVID-19. In light of pandemic restrictions limiting on-campus activities, PTA parent volunteers got creative and figured out a way to continue to inspire reading and help raise money for our beloved PTA programs. 


The first weekend of May 2021, McGaugh PTA teamed up with the Barnes and Noble in Marina Pacifica shopping center in Long Beach to host a book fair. Our Sea Lions showed up, including McGaugh Principal Dr. Gates and his two daughters, to support the effort which raised $3,700 in in-person sales. Rah, McGaugh!!
