They need volunteers! You can sign up HERE
And if you really like helping the library, she would still love helpers during the school days, that sign up link is HERE! This link goes until December, so scroll down to find more dates!
During the book fair, our new libriaian Ms McGillicuddy will set up a donation for a school in Texas that lost everything, and we’d like to send them some money to restock their books. There will be a raffle for a book basket and tickets will be sold to go towards the donations. Mr Roberts has agreed that if they raise a certain amount, he will dress as a favorite book character for a day! (Character to be announced). The annual poster contest will also continue with kids drawing their favorite book and the winner from each grade will have their artwork framed and hung in the library!
While we are on the subject of books, I’m doing a book exchange! So if you purchase books during book fair, and find you have some gently used ones at home that you’d like to gift to someone else, drop them off at the school the week of October 16th. I’ll need helpers to collect them. Then Friday October 20th, however many books your kids bring in, they could choose some other gently used ones. The link to help is HERE. If you want to donate books and your child doesn’t need any in exchange, we will donate the books to various organizations (Our teachers, Our library, KDL Grandville, etc)
Fall conferences will be October 17th & 19th. We will be looking for donations of food for the teachers to feed them since they go from teaching all day, right into meeting with parents and we like to say “Thank you!” for the long day they put in. Details will be coming! Also Tuesday night conference I’ve set up a Jets Pizza night, so if your family is running from work to school and meeting with teachers, its an easy dinner solution. Flyers will be sent home.
Our first ever sale event is scheduled for Saturday October 21st! It is my hope that we will have people sign up who want to sell their used kids clothing/household items and vendors who have home based businesses. The Event is posted here, please share. We need everyones help to share this event and have people come shop. And if you know someone who sells something, see if they want a booth space. Just $15!

Hard to believe we are about a month out from Halloween! Class parties and the annual costume parade will all fall on October 31st. Parties and Parade time will be announced soon.

Receipts must be kept and turned in with a form that is located in our PTC Mailbox.
