Thank you very much to everyone who supported our Fall Book fair by
volunteering to help set up, sell and organize books, pack up and of course
to everyone who bought books. We brought in $8,683.52 and could not have
done this without you. The PTO profit was $2163 and we were also able to
donate $1400 worth of books to our teachers and the library. This is the
best the book fair has done in several years!!

Please save the dates May 13-16 for the spring book fair. The online book
fair continues until November 5th so if your child didn't find everything
they were looking for, please visit http://onlinebookfairs. The books will be delivered to school
and your child can bring them home.
Thank you again for all your help and support for one of the major
fundraisers for the school.
