    SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

    bf

    Our Fall Book Fair was a success! A special thank you to all of the parents who volunteered their time to help during the week and to everyone who purchased books!  This year, we also asked teachers to create Wish Lists.  Parents were able to purchase Wish List books for their children's classrooms during our additional parent/teacher conference shopping hours.  As a gift from the PTA, each teacher was given books from their wish list.  We also had a raffle on Friday where 25 lucky students each won a poster. Congratulations to all the winners!

    SCHOOL STORE 

    s

    Did you know that we have a school store that's run by the PTA? The school store is open Thursdays during your child's lunch period. Prices range from $0.25 to $5.00 . If you send your child to school with some extra change, he/she can have a fun shopping experience! You'll also be supporting the PTA!

    Is your child celebrating a birthday soon? The school store has gift certificates that we can distribute to your child's class. This is a great substitution for traditional goody bags. To purchase gift certificates, you must fill out a request form in advance. Click on the link to download the form.  Questions about school store gift certificates?
