Book Fair

Dear Parents and Families:

We’re excited to announce our upcoming fall Scholastic Book Fair. This event is an opportunity for students to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. After missing out on many beloved traditions, our fall Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. It’s also a great time to purchase some holiday gifts as well. As always, all purchases benefit our school.

Teacher & Staff Holiday gifts: looking for an affordable way to say thank you to your child(ren)'s teacher(s) and other staff in the building? Be part of our first annual Special Gift Giving where, for $5, you can help buy-in to a special spirit wear item that your teacher or staff person has selected. For every $5, your student's name will go in the box with the special gift. Teachers & staff will receive their gift on 12/13 so your child will get to see what they helped purchase before we all take a break for winter. Flyer will be sent home this week, keep an eye out!
