Book Exchange~ Friday, March 16th

Starting Monday, 3/12 through Friday, 3/16, students may bring in gently used books for the book exchange. Teachers will monitor the number of books brought in for the exchange and the available books will then be located in the foyer for the exchange.

On Friday, students will have the opportunity to go to the book exchange. Classrooms will be scheduled to come down to choose books that day.

1 book brought in exchanges for 1 book.

2 or more books brought in exchanges for 2 books.

All gently used children's books are accepted. If your child reads chapter books, please consider them for the exchange. During the exchange we are usually in need of chapter books the most.

Books left over after the exchange will be used for Book Bingo during Family Reading Night. Everyone who wins a bingo game during Family Reading Night will win a gently used book. If you would like to donate a book to be given as a prize for Book Bingo at Family Reading Night, there will be a box in the lobby between March 19th and 23rd. Students and families can donate books to the box at any time that week. Thanks so much for your donations!!
