Be sure to stop in and check out our Book Fair Oct. 28-Nov. 3 from 8:30 am-4:30 pm in the library. Special late hours on Nov. 1 until 7:30 pm. Can't make it by the school? You may also shop online for lots of great book choices at scholastic.com/fair and purchases still benefit our school.
Our "All for Books" challenge will run from Oct. 27-Nov. 3 as a fundraiser for our library while the book fair is going on. Bring in your change to add to your teacher's box. Our challenge is a win-win for everyone! Teachers will get to choose books for their classrooms, our library will receive proceeds from the total sales during the book fair and several children's agencies will receive books for underprivileged children based on our money raised. The winning 5th & 6th grade classroom will receive a traveling trophy. Then, the top 3 classes in each grade level will get a popcorn party. If we raise over $1000 every student in the school will get an ice cream treat. Let's find all that spare change laying around!
We will be collecting used shoes at WIS for the month of October for "Sole Food". Shoes are collected and sold to a buyer. All proceeds go to "Friends Against Hunger". It is amazing that discarded shoes can help provide food for hungry people. Clean out your closets and send in those shoes. There are collection barrels outside the computer lab as well as in the front lobby. Thanks for your help! WIS is making a difference in our community and our world.
