Tremendous Thank You!

Thank you to all the parents, students and staff for your incredible support during our book fair.

It was a huge success! We sold over 1,000 books to students during the five day fair.


We had some wonderful parent volunteers and their help is greatly appreciated. I would like to thank these parents for their help during the fair: Patti Cantu, Mariah Petrosino, Vi Dougherty, Susan Holmes, Rachel Novak, Shahzad Arain, Yvette Alvarez, Jennifer Kiertscher and Saba Al Nuaimi. I could not have run this book fair successfully for our five hundred students without parent volunteers!

Thank you - thank you!

Mrs. J. Powell - Librarian

Patrick Carman - Author Visit

We had a wonderful author session provided by New York Times best selling author, Patrick Carman.

Patrick Carman spoke to our fourth and fifth grade students on February 3. Patrick Carman entertained us with stories from his childhood and tips on how to be a strong writer.
