Thank you all for coming to our fall book fair and supporting our media program. All proceeds go to purchasing supplies and resources for use by Shallowford Falls students and staff. Our fair was very successful thanks to all of our generous parents.
No book fair could take place without the help from a great group of volunteers. Christy Richards and Lisa Podolski are our book fair volunteer coordinators, and we were so fortunate to have such a great group of parents volunteering their time to set up, stock shelves, help the students create wish lists, man the cash registers and take down the fair.
We would also like to thank Anne Baker for coming up with the ideas for the decorations and spending countless hours creating her vision. Thanks to Debbie Buckley's sister, Cynthia, for decorating our horses for Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva's "joust."
Thanks also to Mrs. Angelle and Mrs. Spiva for being up for anything to promote our book fair. We appreciate Kim Puckett and Lindsey Drew for being our pages and Trish Douglas for letting us invade her space and handling the sound. Our teachers were great to be so flexible with their schedules to fit the joust in with not much notice. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Our next practice is Wednesday, December 3, at Garrison Mill Elementary School. We will have parents transport students to Garrison Mill. Mrs. Bradley will take the boys, and we still need a volunteer to take the five girls. Please contact me if you are able to drive. Please have your child study their question packets. This will be a good chance for the kids to see what a competition is like. Parents are welcome to come and watch. We will leave Shallowford Falls about 2:40 for the five minute drive to Garrison Mill. We'll try to end the scrimmage at 4:00 and return the students to our school. Parents should pick their child up around 4:10. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Kelley in the media center. Thank you to Mrs. Lassiter for sending in the snack last week. No snacks will be needed this week as Garrison Mill will provide them.
We hope to have the t-shirts ready by Tuesday. The cost for the t-shirts will be $15 each. Please send in the money for their shirts by Tuesday. Thanks.
