Help a Teacher build their Library for our kids!

Want to express your gratitude toward your child’s teacher while benefiting the classroom?

On Monday and Tuesday of next week, teachers will shop the book fair along with the students and pull out some books that they will add to their “wish list” for their classroom.  This year the wish list will be handled differently from what we have done in the past.  Each teacher will have a plastic basket with their name on it that they will fill with books that they would love to have for their classroom.  You or your child will then have the opportunity to pull the book from the basket and purchase it for use in the classroom.  Labels will be provided for the books in order to gift it to the teacher.  Often the wish lists are depleted during the evening of the Winter Wonderland Social so we are also offering gift certificates for sale that you can also gift to the teachers.  This is a win-win for the school!  If you choose to make a purchase for a teacher, you are helping to add to the classroom library and because $5 of every $10 spent at the book fair goes back to purchase more books for our school our entire school wins!
