Teacher Wish Lists:

Teachers are in constant need of new reading material for their classrooms. The book fair is a great time to purchase quality books for your child's homeroom. Each teacher will complete a wish list form and will have it on display at the book fair. Just look for your child's teacher and see what he/she needs for the classroom. All purchases directly benefit the students.


Monster Mashed Potato Contest - You've seen pumpkins decorated before, but have you ever decorated a POTATO? NO? Now is your chance! Students can submit monster designed potatoes for a chance to win a book fair prize! Information will be sent home with the book fair flyer.

Classroom Monster Door Decorating Contest - Each homeroom will have the opportunity to decorate their door in the monster design of their choice. BE CREATIVE! They must give their monster a creative name, include at least four different materials (paper, fabric, string, foil, paint, felt, etc.), and have their door ready for judging by Friday, October 30th (in time for Halloween celebrations). A primary and an intermediate winner will be announced and will win a Monster Celebration in the library!
