Shopping online at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/gmmc takes place Friday, 11/13 through Monday, 11/30. Online sales still benefit our school and gives you access to everything that Scholastic offers – much more than we could ever have at our book fair! This is a great resource to share with family and friends who aren’t able to attend the Grandparents & Special Friends luncheons but still want to support the school or purchase gifts. Items are shipped to the school for free!
While you’re finding great new books for your family, please don’t forget our classroom teachers! The book fair is an easy way to help support literacy in your child’s classroom. Teachers will have Classroom Wish List forms (look for the giant bulletin board in the media center) showing which books they would love to add to their classroom’s collection. Your child can hand-deliver the book to their very grateful teacher!
We’re also collecting spare change to buy books for children in need at other elementary schools in our area. Alldonors will be able to write their name on a book cut-out and be displayed in the hallway outside the media center. Scholastic will match all donations we collect and donate books to needy children around the world.
We will once again have our Veteran’s Day display to honor the veterans from our Garrison Mill families. Please send in any memorabilia that you would like to share with our students and visitors. Each item should be labeled with the name of a Garrison Mill student. All items should be dropped off in the Media Center by Thursday, 11/12. Items will be sent home on Friday, 11/20 with the student who is listed on the label. If you wish to pick up your items yourself, you are welcome to do so, but we ask that you do so before Friday at 2:15 pm. Thank you for once again sharing your precious memories with us so that our young students can begin to understand the sacrifices and hardships our veterans endured.
