We are excited to offer a limited Book Fair this year!


Flyers have been sent home with students. We will open the Book Fair each day from 4-5:00 pm for parent shopping. All other times during the day will be open for your children to shop if you send them to school with money. We have the credit card machine available as well. You can shop with your child during the afternoon time, or Ms. Randee can call and process your credit card if you can't make it to school. The books range from PK through eighth-grade reading levels. All proceeds from the Book Fair go towards buying additional books and supplies for our library. We appreciate your support of reading and happy shopping!


If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Randee at 806-539-2527 or email her at randee.parker@meadowisd.net.
