  • PTA Used Book Drive

    The PTA will collect used books and learning materials (appropriate for grade K-5 only please) during the week of January 9th - January 17.  Items will be distributed to classrooms, our PTA Free Book Exchange or students as appropriate.  It's a great opportunity to give away books that your children are no longer interested in, make room for new books on your shelves and share with others.  You may hand the books to Ms. Sheri at the grade 1 (garden) door any morning or bring in to the lobby/auditorium.  Thank you.
