A book fair for the books!

Our Scholastic Book Fair was a tremendous success this Fall. We exceeded our goal this year with a total of $11,000 dollars in sales. That means the library received $2,767.82 in Scholastic Dollars, which is how I purchase materials from Scholastic. We also earned $1,383.92 in cash.

The record for the number of students who qualified for the early entry breakfast was broken as well.

I am so blessed to work in a community that supports its library program. If it weren't for the staff, parents and community members that volunteer to work at the book fair we couldn't achieve this level of success. Our amazing volunteers filled 62 openings. Thank you to everyone who gave of their time to make our book fair a success. I would like to extend a special Thank You to Tara Depew (Co-Chair), Amy Antes (Decoration Chair), and the PTO Board of Jen Small, Shelly Manson, Amy White and Angela LaLonde for their support of this event. I would also like to thank Einstein Bros. Bagels for supporting our Books and Bagels Breakfast.

To celebrate the success of this book fair. I am pleased to announce that I will be able to give each child a free book ( $7.00 value including tax) from the BOGO fair this spring.

Great Moments From The Book Fair

Hour of Code

Dear Parents,

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Our Hour of Code is a statement that Sunrise is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer and share the news on your social media channels.

This is a chance to change the future of education in the Central Valley School District.

See for details, and help spread the word.
