Fall is upon us! We enjoyed meeting with everyone during parent teacher conferences! Our Halloween parade was definitely a highlight of our month! As we dive further into Fall, we wanted to ensure everyone is abreast of all the happenings during our Holiday season!
Our scholastic Book Fair will take place 11-15th! This is a great opportunity to add new books to your children’s selections. Teachers will have a wish bin of books they would like personally for your child’s classroom. If you purchase a book for the classroom, stop by the front desk to grab a donation label to sign and place in the book. All purchases will provide us bonus points for us to buy new books for the school and classroom libraries as well as some to donate to Book It Forward, a non profit that provides books to underprivileged children and adults in our area!
Book It Forward Book Drive
Book it Forward! Idaho, a joint initiative of Idaho Voices for Children and The Cabin, is dedicated to increasing access to books for children. They collect new and gently-used books and get them to kids who have little to no access to books at home.
Kids are learning to read up through third grade, and after that, they are reading to learn. Reading proficiently at the end of third grade is the single most important factor for success in school and in life. Having too few books for kids in low-income homes, is a barrier to developing their reading proficiency.
Join our efforts, if you have any gently used books or want to purchase a new book, place books in the Book It Forward Bin and we will get them to children and adults in need.
Life Touch studios will be in the building November 13-15th to take individual photos. They take all our students photos. Proofs will be sent home on the day of the shoot and you can order if you so choose from them. If your Preschool Age child does not attend on their classroom schedule, please see the office and we can make accommodations.
