Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive

We are collecting new pajamas as part of the Scholastic Reading Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive. For every pair of pajamas we collect, Scholastic will donate a book to go along with the pajamas. Pajamas in all sizes are needed. If they are in children's sizes, they must be labeled as "pajamas" by the manufacturer to ensure they are flame retardant. All pajamas that are collected will be donated to a local organization. You may send your donations to school with your child or you may bring them in yourself. We are collecting PJs until December 9th. Thank you!
