Monday, March 26-Wednesday, March 28
Blackwell Front Lobby by the stairs
Purchase eggs for $1 each. Inside some of the eggs will be Golden Tickets!! If a child finds a Golden Ticket, they will return Thursday, March 29 and get a free egg. Inside 3 of those eggs will be a Gold, Silver or Bronze ticket. If a child finds one of those tickets in their egg, they will win a big prize!!
The Book Fair starts tomorrow, Monday March 26th and runs through Thursday evening. There was no preview this time for the students. (I also have a wish list ) There are different options that you have to view the book fair.
1. Come any morning with your student 7:20-7:50 or during their lunch time 11:21-11:51 and shop with them.
2. Stop by the Book Fair Monday thru Thursday from 7:20-2:20 and purchase books.
3. Set up and eWallet account for your student and let them shop on their own during the day.
4. Send money with your student and they will be sent down during the day.
Also, don’t forget that Thursday night is STEAM Night from 5-7pm. The Book Fair will be open as well!
To set up and eWallet account:
With eWallet, you link a credit or debit card to a secure Scholastic eWallet account. When you come (or email us) to purchase, you let us know you have an account and we look you up and charge your account. You can put any amount on your account $10 and up. If you put more on your account than you use, the remaining amount will be put back on your card when the book fair closes on Friday.

While out walking in the snow with her husband and son, a tree branch fell on her, hitting her in the head and severing her spinal column, which has caused permanent paralysis. Jenny has a long road to recovery, and she and her family need any and all help from Blackwell and its surrounding communities.
