Read-A-Thon Fundraiser

This weekend is our last push for reading and getting sponsors for our Read-A-Thon Fundraiser. Tuesday will be our last official day. Thanks to all who have taken part!

Book Fair Next Week!

Book Fair dates and location: September 17-21 in our library


Shopping hours: The book fair will be open during school hours Monday through Friday (closing at 1:00 p.m. on Friday).


Shopping opportunities are also available during Literacy Night on Tuesday, September 18 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and during Dads and Donuts on Wednesday, September 19 and Thursday, September 20 from 7:00-8:00 a.m.


If you are unable to attend the Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at scholastic.com/fair. Our Online Fair is available from September 8-September 21.


Don’t forget, we are required to charge sales tax on book fair purchases, so please factor this in when sending money to school with your child. And when you visit the book fair, remember to check out your teacher’s wish list and consider helping out by purchasing a book for their classroom.


We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school!
