If you are a CHAMPS parent, please come down to the book fair after pickup on Thursday! Be sure to check out the books your classroom teachers have placed in their wish bins!
Sending Money in with your Student/e Wallet:
As a reminder, please send cash in a resealable bag and make checks out to MESA with the monetary limit written in the check note section. Scholastic is also offering a cash-free system called e-Wallet. Parents must transfer leftover funds from previous fairs to a new e-Wallet. The Jordan/Jackson book fair is a separate book fair from Robinson so each student will need their own unique e-Wallet.
If you can’t make it to the fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/jj. Thank you for supporting our students and our school!
JORDAN/JACKSON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 5TH GRADERS
REQUEST THE PLEASURE OF YOUR COMPANY
AT THEIR PERFORMANCE OF DEAR EDWINA JR.
Friday, March 24 @ 7pm and Saturday, March 25 @ 1pm & 7pm
Mansfield High School Auditorium
Tickets can be purchased at the door before each performance for $7.00 (cash or check)
Dear Edwina JR. follows the adventures of a thirteen-year-old advice columnist and problem-solver named Edwina, who dishes out advice and wisdom with the help of her friends and a little song and dance. Edwina Spoonapple would do just about anything to be a part of the Kalamazoo Advice-A-Palooza Festival. While her siblings all have proof “up on the fridge” of their accomplishments, poor Edwina has nothing. When a talent scout from the festival visits her hometown of Paw Paw, Michigan, she trots out her musical advice-giving show live from the family garage in hopes of finding her place in the spotlight.
Dear Edwina JR. is a heartwarming show featuring witty musical lessons exploring courtesy and politeness that will have you laughing out loud. At the heart of all this fun is a wonderful message about the importance of how we treat each other and love ourselves.
We look forward to seeing you in the audiences cheering on these 60 talented kids!
