Please sign up to help at Scholastic Book Fair Volunteer Sign Up. Student Preview Day is Tuesday, November 28th.  In school student purchases can be made on Thursday, November 30th, in addition to our evening buying hours Tuesday from 4:30-8:00, Wednesday from 4:30-8:00, and Thursday from 4:30-7:30.  Clearances are required to help during school hours, but not necessary if volunteering for the evening buying times.

*Next week is the last week to bring donations of gently used clothing, coats, hats, gloves, & shoes for Lydia’s Closet.  Donations can be placed in the box in the office lobby. See Clothing Drive 2017 for more information.  Email Kelly Fogleman at or Diana Everhart-Hanna at with questions.

*Junior Achievement (JA) relates what our students are already learning in school to real-life situations.  Many classrooms are in need of a JA volunteer this year to teach 5 classroom sessions lasting 30-45 minutes each.  JA provides all the training and the materials needed.  See JA Question and Answer Handout for more information.  Please consider helping to fill this need.  Contact Joanne Badger, Program Manager, at with any questions as well as to volunteer.

*We will have Book Nook Wednesday, December 20th, so get ready.  Please keep up the good work with your wonderful donations.  The kids really have a good time picking and purchasing books on their own. 🙂   Book contributions can be dropped off in the book box located in the school office.   If you want to volunteer, please email Laura McCamant at

*As the weather is getting cooler, please be involved in your children’s school clothing choices as much as possible, and have them bring jackets for recess.
