Bedtime with the Bears!
The goal of this program is to strengthen our home-school connection while also building community. Tune in to Facebook Live every Tuesday night at 7PM and get to know our staff members as they read their favorite bedtime story. Be sure to like our school's Facebook page (link below). This Tuesday's guest reader is 5th grade's very own Mrs. Buck (formerly Ms. Montelin)!

** We will have some Carmen Deedy books available for purchase that she will autograph when she visits on January 9, 2020. We will hold the purchased Carmen Deedy books in the Media Center until her author visit. After she autographs the books, we will give them to the students.**
Remember, all purchases benefit our Media Center. It helps us to purchase new books and to pay for author visits.
We hope to see you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school.

Wanted: Arctic Adventure Book Fair Volunteers
The first book fair of the year is always the biggest and most exciting for the students. We need some fun loving, book loving volunteers to help make this Arctic Book Fair a success. If you are good at decorating, we need you! If you like to organize and display products, we need you! We are also looking for volunteers to help with preview days, which requires helping the kids write down what they want to buy. We need people who are willing to run the cash registers. The children need help with shopping and counting out their money. We cannot have a successful book fair without the help of wonderful volunteers like you.
If you can help, please click on this link to get to the volunteer sign-up-genius.
