Don’t forget, Friday is our Fall Festival from 5:00-7:00! I hope to see you there. We are unable to use the back gate path to campus for the Fall Festival, as the path is not lit. Please access campus from the front.
See you tomorrow,
Scholastic Book Fair
September 23-27 in the MPR
Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills.
Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
Book Fair dates: Sept. 23-27
Shopping hours & Special Activities: Visit our homepage for more details on hours and special events!
Two NEW shopping options! Book Fair eWallet is a safe and convenient digital payment option for your student to shop the Fair cash-free. If you’re not able to attend the Fair, try our new online shopping. We’ve partnered with the Scholastic Store to offer over 6,000 products that ship direct to home (with free shipping on book-only orders of $25 or more)!
We hope to see you and your family at our Book Fair! Remember, all purchases benefit our school.
