There’s only a few days left!

Your Loose Change Will Make a Big Difference!

The Central Book Fair is coming and KidsCare is helping children in need with the All for Books program. Last week, a small baggie with information on All for Books attached was sent home in your child’s backpack.

If you are interested in participating, please have your child bring their donation in the bag in to their classroom container by Thursday, January 18th

Regardless of whether you participate, we request that you return your plastic bag to your teacher so that we can be as green as possible and reuse them each year.

The All for Books money will be used at the upcoming book fair being held January 29 through February 2 to buy books for students at Central School needing assistance. Additional monies will be used to donate brand new books to the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

Then, Scholastic will match the funds and donate books to the Kids in Distressed Situations Inc and the Kids in Need Foundation.

The classroom raising the most money will win a pizza party!!!  This is a fun, competitive program that, more importantly, teaches our children the importance of giving back.

Please contact KidsCare Chair, Kelly Holakovsky at kjholakovsky@gmail.com, if you have any questions.
