Conner Prairie Field Trip!
The Book Fair
Our book fair will be set up in our Library during the week of Oct. 12-Oct. 16. It will be open for family shopping on the evenings of Oct. 13, 14, and 15 from 4:00-6:30. Students do NOT shop at the book fair during school hours. If they want to come to the fair, they must come with a family member/adult during the evening hours. I will open the fair each afternoon for parent shopping only. These hours will be from 1:00-3:00.
