The Scholastic Book Fair is Going Virtual!

Travel through the Scholastic Time Machine with your kids to buy books online during our virtual book fair, from October 16th to October 29th! While we won’t have an in-person fair this fall, we know that buying books for students is an important way to fuel their knowledge and inspire imagination. PLUS, your purchases though the book fair provide our school libraries with their own “Scholastic Dollars” which they use to stock up on books and more!

All of the elementary schools are participating in the online fair at the same time. Please click on the school link below to go to your virtual book fair – it starts today!

Drive-In Movie Night Update

It’s happening!! A night out at the movies! We will be hosting our first drive-in on Friday October 23rd at the Upper Elementary School. Due to how popular this event is proving to be, you must purchase tickets ahead of time. I anticipate that this will sell out quickly and no one will be admitted without a purchased ticket. Arrival time can begin at 6:30 (open to change). We can fit 120 cars. COST is $35/car.  We will assign you a parking spot once you arrive. You must park in the space assigned to you.

You CANNOT leave your car (except for bathroom use). There will be ONE porta-potty available for use near the fence of the school (to the right of the movie screen). SOCIAL DISTANCING IS A MUST!!  MASKS are required when out of your car to use the bathroom. The movie will be HOCUS POCUS and will begin around 7pm or once sunset is complete. Concessions will be available and we will be coming around to you (We will be masked and gloved). Please send any questions to Elyse Brown, gbea94@aol.com or 713-206-7913.
