Need some books for summer reading??  No worries, the Spring Book Fair is almost here!  The Book Fair will be here the week of April 18 – 22.  It will be open Mon – Thurs from 8:00 – 3:30 and Friday from 8:00 – 12:00.

* Our Family Night Event will be Wednesday, April 20th from 3:00 – 6:00.  If the parent or guardian of a student attends this event, the student will be eligible to win the Basket of Books!  They will also receive “3” extra tickets to use in voting for the task Mr. Boyd will have to perform for our reading event (ask your student about this :)).

*Teachers will have a classroom wish list if you would like to add to the classroom library – it makes a great end-of-year gift!

*If you can’t make it into the fair, then you can shop at our on-line book fair.  Just click on this link: http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/stpaullutheranschool19
