Scholastic Book Fair

Hopefully you've had a chance to look through the Scholastic flyer that came home this week. The flyer has just some of the books that will be at the fair but there will be many more! The Scholastic book fair is December 7 through December 11 and our Family Night will be on Tuesday, December 8 from 4:00-7:30pm. Your child will attend the book fair during their library time if they bring money. Otherwise he/she will stay in the library. If you would like to come in and help your student shop, we would love to have you! Please remember that checks should be made payable to the Dorothy Nolan HSA and you can write a dollar amount in and we can make change. Please contact with questions.

The SNACPack program will be collecting goods at Dorothy Nolan. They are looking for 4 items which include:

  • Protein Bars
  • Mac & Cheese, Water Only type (Ex. Easy Mac, Velveeta)
