Book Fair is here!  
You can order online starting now.  Our day to purchase in person is Tuesday, Oct. 19, during our normal library time.

We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Hosted by our staff, this event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school. 

After missing out on many beloved traditions, our fall Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. Here’s what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place from Oct. 19-23. 

Our Book Fair offers a cash-free payment option called eWallet. It’s a convenient digital account that your child can use for shopping at our Fair. Grandparents, friends, and others can contribute, too! 

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop online at our school’s Virtual Book Fair. All
orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25.
Your online orders will also benefit our school.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and
online shopping:
We’re excited to celebrate our love of books.

Students also have been given a packet with the flier and brochures of items to purchase.




McTeacher's Night at McDonald's is 5-7 p.m. on Thursday (that's tomorrow). Portion of sales goes to Carlton Hills.  Plus, it's fun to see teachers there.

Parent-Teacher Conferences are Nov. 1-5
These will be virtual meetings again this year.  We'll get a schedule going in October.  I believe we can do either Zoom or Teams (on the student iPad).  These 5 days of school are modified days (students dismiss early).  In some instances, we can set up alternate times or dates.  More to come later.
