Book Fair

Get ready, Book Fair is back! Come to the MPR all week and have a spooky good time. Classes will be visiting during the week to shop, and we will be open before and after school. Money raised from the Book Fair is used to purchase books for our school library and classrooms. And back by popular demand, the Coin-a-Day Challenge returns! Students are encouraged to bring in change throughout the week to their class. There will be Pennies on Monday, Nickels on Tuesday, Dimes on Wednesday, Quarters on Thursday, and Wild Card Friday where donations of any value are welcome. The top 3 classrooms that collect the highest total amounts will receive upgrades to their classroom reading areas. And the grade that collects the most donations will earn an extra recess! If you have any questions, contact Kate Miller at
