Fall Scholastic Book Fair
Come for a “Once Upon A Time” experience at our Enchanted Forest Book Fair, October 1st through 5th. The Book Fair is open daily from 7:30 am to 3 pm, and will also be open from 7-8 pm Wednesday for those that attend Family Literacy Night. Students must have a parent present to shop at the Book Fair before or after school. Throughout the week, during their regular library time, students will have the opportunity to visit the Book Fair and make a wishlist or shop for items if they have brought money to school that day. All sales earn money to purchase new books for our school library. To shop online, click here. If you are available to volunteer during the day next week, please click here to sign up. We especially need volunteers for the 11:30-1:30 and 1:30-3 shifts on all days, all shifts on Thursday and Friday, and Wednesday evening from 7-8.

Fall Conferences 10/8-10/10
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for Fall Conferences, but here we are! In order to meet with all of us, our teachers put in some very long days during conference week, and we like to show our appreciation by providing them with some nourishment. Our Hospitality Committee has planned meals and snacks for 10/8-10/10, and would love your help to get all of the items needed. It’s easy to contribute, there are small and large requests, and of course you can sign up to bring one item or many. Click here to see the SignUp Genius.
