The School Library will once again hold an Usborne Book Fair. The dates are Tues. Dec. 5th - Thursday, Dec. 7th. There will be after-school hours on Wed., Dec. 6th. until 5:30. This is the same company as last year’s book fair. It offers a generous payback in books for the library: ½ the total sales in books. I was able to begin a number of fine nonfiction collections as well as picture, easy and middle school fiction. So keep it on your calendar and be thinking Christmas gifts.
School Days Program
Save your home Northwestern Energy Propane receipts! For every gallon you purchase, the school will earn $.02. It doesn't seem like much, but it adds up quickly! We will place a receipt box in the office, all you have to do is bring your original receipts to school and drop them in the box.
Check with your neighbors that may use propane (they don't have to live in our district) and ask them to save their receipts, then you can collect them. Check with businesses in the area, too!
We can earn up to $2000 for our school. The students will have a choice in how the money is spent! Think about how this money can be spent with the money earned from the School Days program! It's like money in the "tank".

Please join the Parent Group facebook page.
Please have students dress in layers and bring a jacket for the unpredictable fall weather.
Students are encouraged to have sunscreen in lockers to apply for outdoor PE and recess. Students should have at least one emergency lunch item in their locker.
