Birthday Box Program
What is the Birthday Box Program?
Has your child ever received a birthday party invitation and instead of
sharing your child's excitement, you are wondering if you can afford a
present? The goal of the Birthday Box Program is to help take away that
worry by providing an age appropriate gift that your child can give to the
birthday boy/girl. There is no financial obligation to you. The mission of
the program is to help all our students maintain important social
connections with their peers, like attending a birthday party, without
placing a financial burden on the family.
How it works?
A child alerts their teacher that they have to go to the nurse's office.
Mrs. Fulginiti will have the Birthday Box in her office. This box is
filled with all different kinds of toys and games including the wrapping
paper. She will help the student pick out an appropriate gift and help
wrap it. The student then will pick up the present at the end of the day.
It will be placed in a non-descript bag to maintain complete privacy.
This program is available to any of our school's families with financial
need and is provided at no charge.

Parents, please mark your calendars. The Fall Book Fair is scheduled for
Wednesday October 23 – Friday October 25. The theme is "Book Fair Oasis -
A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books". There will be a wide variety of books
for all ages, from picture books to chapter books to reference books. The
Fall Book Fair will run concurrently with Breakfast with a Buddy. In
addition, children will be scheduled to attend the fair during school, and
there will be opportunities for parents to attend as well. It's a great
opportunity to start your holiday shopping!
This year we also have the ability to preorder the newest Diary of a Wimpy
Kid book – "Hard Luck". Details will go home with your child – lookout for
this so you can order the book before it's even released in November! In
addition, if you aren't able to make the book fair you can also order
online between 10/16 and 11/5 using the following link -
Also, we are still looking for volunteers. If you would like to get
involved in this important literacy program, please volunteer using the
following link -
