October 2022

Mark your calendars for our fall, Scholastic Book Fair!

Our in-person purchasing will be held October 13 - 20, 2022. If you're at school for a conference on either of the early release days, we'd love for you to stop by with your child to purchase books!

Families can also purchase books online at:

Or, click the image to be taken to our fall, Scholastic information flyer. (A paper copy came home in your child's Friday folder.)

Resources for Students: October Choice Boards

Where reading, learning, making, STEAM, coding, technology, and music can take you on adventures all month long.

These choice boards are located in the ItsLearning CASTLE Course, so that students have access to them all year long!

How to View Your Library Book Check-outs

Did you know that any library patron (students, teachers, staff) can view what they have checked out from our school library? Watch this short video on How-to-View Your Library Book Checkouts to learn an easy way to verify whether your books are soon-to-be due or overdue. All 1st - 5th grade students are shown this feature at the beginning of the school year, but some forget that this feature is available to them through ClassLink.

Also, all families with overdue books should be receiving an email notification from Destiny, our online media catalog. This email arrives on Sunday, to give you time to locate and send the books back to school with your child.
