Get Ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger Readers. AND—as always—every book they buy earns rewards for our school. Our Fair takes place from October 31st- November 4th 2022.
This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account.
Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases.
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:
Veteran's Day Display
Veterans Day is coming soon on Friday, November 11th! Our school's character trait for November is Gratitude. To honor and show gratitude for the veterans that we know, we will be creating a display in our main hallway for the month of November.
Students received a special veteran star sheet with directions on how to honor your veteran. Turn in your sheet to your teacher or the office as soon as it is ready. We hope to have most of the stars displayed by Family Math Night on Thursday, November 3rd!
