Each day during the Book Fair, we invite you to come to school and “LUNCH WITH YOUR WORLD TRAVELER” (your student) and then come shop the Book Fair!


It’s time to clean out your book shelves before Book Fair!
Ms. Clark’s class will be conducting a Book Drive to benefit Books Between Kids, a nonprofit that works to build home libraries for children in need.  The Book Drive will start on Monday, February 5th and run through Book Fair.  During February 5-12, the students will have boxes in classrooms and the halls into which students can drop book they wish to donate.  During the Book Fair (Feb. 13-16), they will have a box in the Book Fair room (the Library).  Thanks so much for your support of their amazing project!


GIFT CERTIFICATES

Unable to make it to school to shop during lunch or after school?  No problem!  We are excited to offer Gift Certificates for purchase again this year. Gift certificates are an easy way to allow any ROE student, teacher, or specialist to purchase books at the upcoming Book Fair. Gift certificates will be delivered to the child’s classroom each morning and may be used to purchase items sold in the Book Fair on any day of the Book Fair, including on Family Night (gift certificates cannot be used to purchase Family Night tickets). Any unused funds from the gift certificates will be given as a contribution to the ROE PTO at the close of Book Fair.  Gift certificates will also be available for purchase at the Book Fair.
