A message from Mr. Valli and Ms. Rescott (Our PE teachers!):
A note from our preschool:
In an effort to be green and recycle items as much as possible, we are wondering if any families have play centers stored away in their garages or attics that their children have outgrown that they would like to donate. We really like the Melissa and Doug brand as they are high quality and the kids love them! Interested folks could contact Karen Sullivan (email@example.com) to coordinate.
The Book Fair is Here!
The Scholastic Book Fair is here! This exciting event is a major fundraiser for our school library. Students in grades 1-3 will be able to visit the book fair during the school day on their regular library day. Prek and K students will be able to shop with their parents during the scheduled family shopping hours (before school, after school, some evenings, and a Saturday morning). Parent volunteers will be needed throughout the week of the book fair.
Please see the links below for information about the book fair schedule, family shopping opportunities, parent volunteers, e-Wallet and more.
