Our Fall Monster Book Fair is here November 16-20, and we want you to come and be a part of it! We hope you will come and view the fair with your child during the preview days, before or after the feasts for kindergarten and fifth graders, at our Tuesday Family Night Event, or any time during the hours we're open during the week. Those hours are:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday - 7:30am-4pm
Tuesday 7:30am-7:30pm (Evening Event 5:30-7:30pm)
Friday - 7:30am-noon
At our Tuesday Night Family Event, there will be two food trucks (a taco truck and a grilled cheese truck) if you would like to purchase dinner. Ms. Marco will be there to tell stories and there will be guessing games and a book walk. Don't miss out on our Tuesday Night Monster Mash!
All profits from the Book Fair go toward buying books and supplies for our media program. We thank you for your support. Click on the link below to see book trailers and information about our online book sales.
I'm still working hard on combining the lists to make final questions for each book. I should have the last few this week. These are the lists that your child should study. They will be on white paper and the other versions should be thrown away.
Your child should study the question packets already handed out and make sure to take tests on every book he/she has read. At this point, I don't really need anymore questions to be written. I will take care of the rest of the books. Just have your child study the packets.
We will be going to Garrison Mill on the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving break. Please return the permission slips this week. I will contact the parents who have volunteered to drive. Thank you so much for your response on this. All parents are welcome to come and watch if you like. Or we will deliver your child back to Shallowford Falls around 4:15 that day.
Avanti will be providing snacks this week. Keep reading and studying your packets!!
Would you like to recognize your child's birthday by donating a book to our media center? Fill out the form below and send in a check for $10. A few weeks before your child's birthday, we'll bring him/her to the media center to pick out a book from a selection of brand new books from a recent book order. We'll place a Birthday Book Club bookplate inside the front cover honoring your child on his/her birthday. Then, your child will be given the opportunity to present his/her new book to the media center on our local Fox5 Shallowford Falls morning broadcast. All proceeds will be used to purchase new books and materials for our media center. We appreciate all you do to support our program.
The new GCBA books have been chosen. Click on the link below to see them! All of you third and fourth grader super-readers, get ready for next year's Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team at Shallowford Falls by checking them out right now! We have asked Scholastic to send as many as possible for our book fair this month. Pick up a few to read over the summer so you'll be ready to compete next year on our team!
