ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • The Annual Book Swap will take place Friday, May 20. Start cleaning out books your children have outgrown and donate them to the book swap.  The Book Swap is an opportunity for your child(ren) to bring in books from home that they have read and would like to swap for “new” books to take home and keep. Please bring in gently used books you own. Students can donate up to five books.

    • Please do not donate board books or preschool themed books. Chapter books are the most popular books at the swap.
    • Your child(ren) can drop off books in the front lobby of the school every morning May 16-19. Parent volunteers receiving the books will track the student’s donations.
    • Participating students will visit the swap in the morning during school to select up to five “new” books.
    • If students are absent on the day of the swap your child(ren)’s teacher will choose books and set them aside until your child returns to school.
