Our “Elephant, Tigers, and Books—Oh My!” spring book fair begins Friday, March 20, 2020! All proceeds from the book fair go to purchase new books and library supplies for our Green Valley Library! The Book Fair is open 8:20AM-4:00PM with the exception of Wednesday, March 25, 2020 (8:20-2:20PM) and our annual Donuts at Daybreak (previously known as Dads and Donuts) when we open early at 7:30AM on Friday, March 27th! We hope to see you there!

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 12:15PM-12:45PM: TK & Kindergarten parents, grandparents, or nannies after you pick up your child(ren) from school, stop by the Elephant, Tigers and Books—Oh My! Book Fair for storytime with Mrs. Grim, our principal. This is a special time for you to come and shop the book fair while your young ones are listening to some wonderful stories from the great selection of books found at the book fair. We hope to see you there so you can shop for a bit while the kids are occupied!

We’ll be ending the spring “Elephants, Tigers, and Books—Oh My Book Fair with our 8th annual Donuts at Daybreak (previously known as Dads & Donuts) in the morning before school starts on Friday, March 27, 2020. Come on by between 7:30AM-8:20AM for this special event. Come early for a donut and coffee/juice (while supplies last) and explore the jungle of books for some good reads and buys at the book fair during this special time with your child(ren). It’s a fun event you won’t want to miss! See you there—--Oh My!

While you are at the book fair, please consider giving a monetary donation to ALL FOR BOOKS, a program that helps our sister school Heights Elementary in Pittsburgh, CA get new books in the children’s homes and in the school library, too. Our goal is to raise $1,000.00 for the ALL FOR BOOKS program. It’s a great program and for every dollar we collect, Scholastic will match up to $1 million in books to the agencies that they work with for children in need. The money we collect also benefits our Green Valley Library!

You can also support your classroom teachers and our support staff (speech, resource, science, library, PE, music, and technology) by purchasing books for their classroom libraries from their wish list bins or just one that would be a fun read for the class or the staff member!
