ELEMENTARY BOOK FAIR

Feel free to join your child during their shopping time or shop anytime during our open hours. The Book Fair will be open to everyone 8:15-3:30 Tuesday-Friday. We will be having Family Night Wednesday evening (Nov 14th) from 6pm-8pm. See our flyer in the Virtual Backpack with all information and the form for teacher gift certificates.
ALL FOR BOOKS
Remember to bring in your dollars for the Classroom Dollar Challenge! We are collecting dollars in each of the Kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms through this Wednesday, November 14th. Money collected will be used to help build the classroom libraries of a local school in need. The classroom that collects the most money will win a shopping spree at the Book Fair. Each student from the winning class may choose one item (book, toy, poster, etc) with a value of $10 or less at their classroom shopping spree. Let’s help increase access to books for all students!
The PTO’s 7th Annual Holiday Halls is Saturday, December 1st from 9am-12pm in the Junior High Entrance. The event includes the Secret Shopping Village, Holiday Market and Holly Jolly Breakfast. The Secret Shopping Village is a fun, safe shopping opportunity for your child. The Junior High gym is filled with a variety of gifts for siblings to grandparents, priced from $1-$5. The gym is a ‘no parent zone’ where volunteer ‘elves’ help your student shop for the whole family. Items are gift wrapped for free before your child exits the gym. Shop the Oak Grove Junior High halls while your kids shop, too! At the Holiday Market you will find local premium vendors with unique gift options in jewelry, home goods, clothing and more. After all your shopping, enjoy a fun, family breakfast together! The Pancake Breakfast offers a pancake bar with personalized toppings, freshly cooked eggs, bacon, sausage & hash browns. There are gourmet donuts and plenty of Starbucks coffee and hot cocoa. Gluten free options are available. For additional information, please see the flyer in the virtual backpack.
