It's book fair time!  Our Dino-Mite Book Fair runs Feb. 22nd - Mar. 1st.  Students will be attending the fair during their library classes.  Information is being sent home with the date your child goes to the fair.  

The book fair will also be open during our Dino-Mite Reading Night on Wednesday, February 27th at 6:30.  Doors will open at 6:15 to sign-in and get your group assignment.  The event is free but tickets are needed to attend.  Please check for the Family Reading Night flyer and return it ASAP to get your tickets.
