Thank you to the many volunteers who made the Book Fair and Ice Cream Social run so smoothly. Thank you also to our community partners for their generous donations:

Coming Soon – Scholastic Book Fair

There are added benefits for you too — including an expanded book selections and the ability to donate books directly to your students classroom.

Check out your red-folders starting next Monday, October 24th for more details.
