Scholastic Book Fair: 10/22-10/25
The Scholastic book fair is back for 2019 and will run Tuesday, October 22nd through Friday, October 25th. This exciting event is something kids and parents look forward to each year.  With your support, we are able to stock up the school library and provide many new books for teacher classrooms each year.  This year we will continue the tradition of providing $5 in Scholastic dollars for each student.  Unable to shop in person?  You can also shop online from 10/17 – 10/30.  Please use this link to direct the benefits to our school.  The Book Fair is impossible to run without many amazing volunteers. Please consider signing up for a volunteer spot by clicking here.

Box Tops Collection
It’s that time of year again to start saving your Box Tops!  This year things are a little different as there are two ways to participate:
1. Clip Box Tops and turn them into your child’s classroom teacher.
2. Download the Box Top app and scan your receipts.  The link to download the             app is here.
When you submit a receipt through the app, please make sure you add your child’s teacher’s name to the “credit” memo for each scan.  This allows you to tag your earnings to a specific classroom teacher.  If you shop for groceries online you can now submit your email receipts from select retailers.

Starting Oct.1st – 28th, the teacher/classroom with the highest number of clipped Box Tops or scanned receipts will win a Cake Pop Party sponsored by the PTA! So, download that app and scan your receipts OR clip those box tops and turn them into your child’s teacher.  Please email any questions to
