Welcome Back!  Our first Book Fair of the year will be held September 14th-21st.  Students will attend the fair during their library class and will have the opportunity to make a wish list of the books they want to purchase. A notice will be sent home with the date your child's class will be attending along with a preview flyer of some of the books.  Please be sure to send book money to school in an envelope or baggie with your child's name and classroom on it.

You can also visit the fair during Open House on Wednesday, September 19th from 5:00-7:00 PM.  While selecting books for your home, please consider donating a book to your child's classroom.  You can check out the Teacher Wish Lists in the library for some suggested titles.  If you can't make it to the fair, you can also purchase books online from September 7th-23rd.  All orders will be shipped to the school free of charge.  Just highlight the link below and right click to shop.  Remember that every book purchased at the fair helps benefit our school library!
