Book Drive

We will be hosting a book drive to benefit Bernie's Book Bank concurrently with the book fair. Students can bring gently used or new children's books that range from birth to 6th grade reading level. Children's books, board books, recent non-fiction and chapter books are all accepted. Books can be put into collections bins from February 6-9.  

Lunch with my Learner Program

Please read the following items so that this program can run smoothly.

  • We can only allow for ONE visitor per student, ONE visit per student this year. This will be tracked using the student’s name. Your student’s first visit will be counted as their one for the year, any other future visits on the sign up will be deleted. Thank you for your cooperation with this as this is the only way to allow every student to participate in the program. 
  • Please add the student’s name and teacher to the sign up. This allows the staff to prepare for your visit. 
  • Please remember that you may bring lunch for yourself and your student. Carbonated beverages are discouraged. You may not bring in any items (food or otherwise) to share with any other students. 
  • If you need to sign up or make adjustments to your sign up, you can do that here
