The book fair will be open from 8:30am-4pm on Wednesday, 1/23 and Thursday, 1/24.  We will reopen again on Thursday evening at 6:30pm during the Winter Wonderland Social.  The Winter Wonderland Social hours are 7-8:30pm but the book fair opens early for shopping!  Please be “green” and bring your own shopping bag to the fair.

hot chocolateBring the entire family to the Winter Wonderland Social event in the Hauser Auditorium for hot chocolate, lots of baked goodies and fruit!  After you enjoy your treats, head across the hall to shop at the book fair.  For the safety of all the children, we ask you that you not allow them to run around in the auditorium (or anywhere else in the school).

If we sell out of a book at the fair, we are happy to order you a replacement copy or you can go online to
onlinebookfairs.scholastic.com/default.aspx?f=3072803 and order it yourself.  You will be charged the same price online as you would at the fair and our school receives the same benefits.  Your order will be shipped for free to the school!

 

And, coming soon…the fantastic results of our All for Books change collection drive!

  • a sculpture to be designed by a local artist for placement in the Kustok memorial reading garden
  • new indoor recess materials including books, board games and movies
  • materials to build carnival games for social gatherings so that we don’t need to borrow from other schools

Flying Carpet Club
Junior Great Books

Volunteer Info Session!

Looking for ways to encourage a life-long love of reading with your kids?

The PTO’s Flying Carpet Club program runs from January through mid-March. Volunteer Club Leaders are needed once a week or every other week during this period.

Toting carpets into Central School classrooms, Flying Carpet Club leaders take children in grades 1-5 on lunchtime literary adventures.  Music, food, movement and art activities help spark meaningful discussions about the world-class, grade-level appropriate literature collected in Junior Great Books™ anthologies. . . and build lasting memories!

As each Club is limited to 6-8 children, our ability to offer the program depends on parental willingness to lead, or co-lead, with another parent.

Please join us for one of the following info/training sessions:

Tuesday, November 27 at 12:00 p.m.

or

Friday, November 30 at 9:00 a.m.

R.S.V.P. to Aberdeen Ozga at aberdeen1@comcast.net or (312) 209-6220.
