Dear Parents and Families,

The Fall 2014 Scholastic Book Fair will be at our school from Friday, October 31st through Monday, November 10th, 2014.

Our Book Fair theme is Sir Readalot’s Castle. This season’s Book Fair will be an exciting celebration full of fun activities and hundreds of books kids want to read.

We are urgently soliciting volunteers who are creative, crafty and want to be on the decorating team. There will be projects you can do at home, so you don’t have to be at the school for the various tasks we have to complete.

Dear Parents and Families:

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits.

It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

- Set the example. Let children see you read.
- Have a collection of books in the home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.-
- Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

Dear Charter School Parents,

As one of the nation’s largest charities, the United Way of America understands the impact that charitable giving has on improving communities and helping individuals. Education is just one of the United Way’s top priorities when advocating for good public policy and their team of volunteers work vigilantly every day to ensure that every child has a quality education.

Do you need volunteer hours, but don't have much time to 'hang around' the school?

Our art teacher needs many, many (adult size) shirt hangers for an upcoming project. The hangers may be any style plastic or wire.

Please bring as many hangers as you can spare to the front office.

Thank you. Your help is much appreciated!!!

CALLING ALL 5th GRADE BABY PHOTOS! We need your precious baby photo for the yearbook. PLEASE DO NOT CUT THE PHOTO!

It is much harder to scan and will leave lines around the photo. Your photo will be returned exactly how it is submitted. Please include your child’s first and last name on the back of the baby photo along with the 5th grade teacher’s name.

If you prefer, you can submit a high resolution (300 dpi) electronic photo directly to [email protected] The deadline for submission was Monday, 10/27. ​

Thank you so much for your time and efforts!
