**See Nitrauer 2019 Project Fair and Art Show for additional information.  You must sign-up online (Art Show Sign Up; project fair: Project Fair Sign Up). Sign-up online by Friday, February 8th.

*Book Nook DonationsWe are thrilled at the number of wonderful books pouring in so keep up the good work.  Please only donate K-4 appropriate books.   We have volunteers spending hours sorting and organizing books.  Thanks so much volunteers! Unfortunately, we  CANNOT use young board books, baby books, adult level books or damaged books (water or mold), and it is a process to weed/dispose properly from the growing collection of awesome books that the children have brought us.  Please do not send anything but age appropriate K-4 books.  For examples of what would be considered age appropriate, use Scholastic books flyers or your scholastic website as a reference.  Books can be dropped off in the office.  THANKS families!
