Students are excited to read to a furry friend in the Media Center. After they check out books, students may select a stuffed animal to read their book to. The results have been amazing. Students are more focused as they share wonderful books with furry friends.

It is that time again. Our fall book fair will run Monday, October 29th-Friday, November 2nd. We have so many wonderful books, and books make great gifts for the holidays. Most of our students have had an opportunity to watch a preview video, showcasing great titles, and classes have walked through the fair. There is always a lot to see.
Our fair opens at 7:15 each morning. However, students need to check in with their teacher before arriving in the fair. If accompanied by a parent, they can come in and shop during morning announcements. Each grade level has been assigned a time to shop, so if a child is not accompanied by a parent, they will need to wait until their grade level’s assigned time.
We do remain open each day after school. On Wednesday (Halloween), we will close at 2:00 PM, but Thursday, we will stay open until 5:00 PM. We will close early on Friday @ 1:00 PM.
Parents, if you wish to purchase a book for your child’s teacher, you may do so by pulling their little black box off the top of the cases in the fair. The teachers have selected books that they know their students will enjoy reading. So, you are helping that teacher to build a classroom library. What an awesome gift!
Do your children like to stay ACTIVE during the summer months? Are you constantly looking for fun activities to keep them occupied? I created a BINGO card to keep your child reading AND having fun. Not only will these activities keep them reading, but they are building lasting memories, as well. PRIZES will be given to the students who can meet my challenge. Look for the BINGO card on the main page of Pitner website. Scrapbooks need to be turned into your child’s “new” homeroom teacher by Friday, August 10, 2018. Enjoy your summer!!!
