Spring Book Fair: The Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the cafeteria March 6 – 10 and the special Pastries with Parents is scheduled for Tuesday, March 7. Our Book Fair theme for spring 2017 is Happy Camper Book Fair: S’more Fun with Books! The children will have an opportunity to win a $5.00 gift certificate to spend at this spring fair. The children will receive a blank sheet of paper so that they can use their imaginations to draw/color a picture of what fun camping looks like to them! The children should turn in their completed creations to Mrs. Ruffing by the end of the day on Tuesday, February 28. On the back of the paper should be the child’s name, their teacher’s name and grade. There will be one winner from each classroom. Mrs. French will announce the winners prior to the start of the book fair.
