Kindergarten busy making their own magnificent thing in Innovation Lab!

Annual Food Drive

Student Council will be hosting a food drive to benefit the Carbon Valley area Wednesday, November 29- Wednesday, December 6.  The items most needed are peanut butter, canned chicken & tuna, canned fruit, and cereal. All items need to be non-perishable.  Students will bring items to their classrooms and our school goal is 2000 items. If we reach our goal, we will have staff take a “pie in the face” before Winter Break. Thank you for your support!

Giving Tree

In order to help provide a magical holiday experience for some of our families in need of assistance, we are sponsoring a Giving Tree. If you can help donate a new gift for a child, please stop by the office anytime starting November 17th- December 8th for a tag. All gifts will need to be wrapped and brought to the office by Tuesday December 12th. Thank you for your support!

About the Book Fair eWallet

Give your child a safe, cashless way to shop at the Book Fair. This digital payment option can be used at the in-school Book Fair or online at the Virtual Book Fair, where you’ll discover an expanded selection of over 5,000 products. Plus, every purchase benefits our school! 

How It Works:

– Create an account for each child

– Add funds

– Invite family and friends to contribute

– Shop the Book Fair

– Spend unused funds online or fund an eWallet for your next Fair!

After the Fair, remaining eWallet funds are not returned to a credit card but instead, become a gift card balance that can be used online with Scholastic or to fund an eWallet for a future Book Fair. Be sure to sign in with the same email used to create the eWallet.
