A message from the principal

Dear Families,

The book fair is back at Dieringer Heights Elementary!

We are looking forward to seeing our families’

faces and getting books into the hands of our students.

Remember all proceeds will go towards the

libraries for keeping those shelves stocked with all the books our students love to read!

Important Items to Know:

Location: Dieringer Heights Library

Book Fair Dates: March 20th – March 24th

Hours: M/T/W 8:15am – 3:30pm

Friday- 8:15 am-1:00 pm

Conference day: 8:30am – 4:30pm

An Online Book Fair will also be running concurrent to the in-person fair

Students at DHES will be shopping during their library time and during lunch times throughout

the week. We highly encourage families to take advantage of eWallet as it makes it easier for

students to shop and significantly helps our volunteers keep the book fair moving smoothly.

Please avoid sending your student(s) to school with baggies of coins.

For both LTES and DHES students we are offering families

the opportunity to send our book fair

volunteers an emailed shopping list (from the flyer books only) that we can fill and have

delivered to the students in class.

eWallets will be required for payment (see ewallet

information below).

Email for Shopping List: ptabookfair21@gmail.com

eWallets: these will be the best option for all students when shopping the book fair! We highly

encourage families to use the eWallet option for their students…

all unused funds will become a

gift card to use at future fairs or online anytime.

To sign up for eWallet please visit this link:


Thank you for all your support!

Mr. Anderson and Ms. Bond

Dear Families:

On Monday, March 27th, Community Health Care’s dental team will be at Lake Tapps Elementary to provide exams, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants (for molars that have fully erupted and have surfaces for which sealants would be beneficial). If you would like your child to participate, please complete and return the permission form by March 17th. Permission forms will be sent home with your child. Participating students will bring home a written assessment of the exam findings and any additional dental needs. If your child is insured, Community Health Care will bill your insurance.

If your child is not insured, all services are free!

Thank you,

Terry Woodall, R.N.
